Interesting to see Marc as co-driver, must be for his navigation skills because FA is used to driving around a track :)

It was becoming waaaay too expensive to run it over there.
I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Just spotted something interesting. HRC has signed a South African expat rider, Aaron Mare. I've never heard of him though, seems like he's been doing some racing abroad.

2018 Desert Storm Rally Champion
2011 Qualified 125cc Junior World Championship
2008 Top 15 85cc Junior World Championship

The new HRC teams for 2020 have been revealed in the auditorium of the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, with Monster Energy Honda Team showing off their most recent signing.

The Stella Polare Auditorium at Milan’s EICMA hosted the presentation of the new 2020 HRC line-ups. In the audience, leading journalists from the motorcycle world gave a rapturous greeting to the announcement of next season’s squads for the various disciplines in which HRC’s riders will officially compete: MotoGP, Superbike, Motocross, Trial and Rally. The main protagonists at the event were accompanied on the rostrum by Noriake Abe, Chief Officer for Motorcycle Operations at Honda Motor Co. and Shigeki Nomura, HRC President.

American Ricky Brabec, Argentinian Kevin Benavides, Spanish Joan Barreda, Chilean José Ignacio Cornejo and South African Aaron Maré will be the five Honda HRC riders who line up for the 2020 Dakar Rally on its maiden residence in the Middle East.

Two Monster Energy Honda Team riders, Kevin Benavides and Ricky Brabec, attended the presentation, given that team-mates Joan Barreda, José Ignacio Cornejo and the squad’s newcomer Aaron Maré, are all currently involved elsewhere in final testing before the great challenge.

Aaron Maré, new team member
Monster Energy Honda Team has incorporated South African rider Aaron Maré into the ranks who is set to make his official 2020 Dakar Rally debut at the event in Saudi Arabia from January 5-17. Maré, with a motocross background, has previously participated with the team in a supporting role in the Cross-Country Rallies events in Chile and Morocco, is currently involved in private training in the build-up to the 2020 Dakar. The recent achievements of Aaron Maré include first place clinched at the Dubai International Baja and the UAE Baja Championship, as well as victory in the Desert Storm Rally.

Former rider Ruben Faria as been appointed as Monster Energy Honda Team General Manager. Faria was the Sporting Manager of the Team in the last Dakar.

Aaron Maré
Aaron Maré got his first motorcycle at age four to ride in motocross. He subsequently went on to notch up numerous victories and some regional titles in South Africa, in addition to making it onto the national podium on various occasions.

Aaron Maré
Background
In 2008 the rider made the leap to the Junior World Championship where he competed in MX 85, finishing in the top 20. He moved residence between Holland and Belgium and continued racing in Motocross in Europe before moving on to the United States where he graduated into the highest category, competing in the AMA Outdoor Nationals until 2015. Maré’s nomadic spirit made him settle in Dubai, where he was bitten by the desert bug and ended up falling in love with racing in the sand. In his first season competing in the Baja he finished third, with greater successes to follow, such as the triumph in the Emirates Baja Desert Championship, the UAE Rally Championship and also the Desert Storm Rally in India, even outclassing several factory riders. In 2019 he clinched victory in the Dubai International Baja, a points-paying event towards the FIM Bajas World Cup.

Is Stuart doing Malle Moto? Is that why his number background is red?
