Dynamic Racing has been savoring the Taste of Dakar during the Sonora Rally in Mexico this week. Christine GZ suffered a fractured hand a day before the start of the rally, but if you think a little broken hand is going to stop Dynamic’s Wonder Woman then you certainly don’t know Christine GZ. A bucket of ice and proper bandaging was all she required before jumping into her UTV turbo racecar and attacking the dunes of the Sonora desert.
We are extremely excited to announce that during the third day of the rally, stage 3A, Christine GZ finished 1st overall in vehicles after motorbikes. Meaning, she was the fastest car of the day in a Road to Dakar event! The following day she finished 2nd overall in stage 4! Back to back wins for Dynamic Racing.
This is a shot of nitro to the all ready high-octane ambition that fuels Christine, and she did it with only one good hand. This feat of strength, speed, and steel determination puts Christine into a league of extraordinary drivers who have raced with broken bones or fresh injuries. That league includes legends like Richard Petty who raced multiple times with various broken bones, and Carroll Shelby who once taped a freshly casted broken arm to the steering wheel for a race. Now there is Christine with two Top 3 finishes back to back in an off-road desert rally with a broken hand. We couldn’t be more proud of her!
There is still one more day of rallying to go before the Sonora Rally ends. Christine GZ triumph is held in support by co-driver Ricardo Torlaschi whose vast Dakar experience allows Christine to run at her full flat-out potential with confidence that she is going in the right direction.
