My name is Willem du Toit, an amateur motorcycle rally racer. I have completed a number of navigational rallies, and in 2016 I won the South African leg of the Dakar Challenge, thereby ensuring my entry to the 2018 Dakar.
As many of you know the Dakar is the hardest and most dangerous motorsport event in the world, and
to compete in the Dakar on a motorcycle costs a little over R1 million. My budget is available on the linked website. Luckily I won my entry fee, approximately R280 000, thereby reducing costs considerably.
All funding I receive will be used to pay for my assistance team, which include motorcycle hire, all spares and daily maintenance as well as logistics.
This is an once in a lifetime opportunity, and one of my lifelong dreams, that I will do anything to make a reality.
