Coma steps down from role as Dakar Rally Sporting Director


Marc Coma, the Dakar Sporting Director, has decided to leave his position with the biggest rally-raid in the world in order to fully devote himself to personal projects. 

Amaury Sport Organisation would like to express its heartfelt thanks to Marc for the three years he has spent as a member of the organisation team. Indeed, Marc has poured all his elite-level energy and skills into servicing the Dakar, working hand-in-hand with all the members of the organisation team and passing on his wealth of experience to his colleagues. Amaury Sport Organisation hopes he meets with similar success in his new projects. 

Marc Coma said: “After having competed in the Dakar and won it five times, I’ve been lucky enough to discover what it’s like on the other side of the fence and the amazing organisational machine that runs this outstanding event. Being in the heart of the rally for three years, in contact with specialists fully devoted to their task, has taught me much about the professionalism and commitment of the organisational teams that work on an event that is unique throughout the world. I hope that the Dakar continues to be the subject of excitement and dreams for many a year to come.”
