The professional explorer, Mike Horn, and five-time winning driver Cyril Despres are determined to change the way motor racing is done on the planet. In 2021, they participated in the Dakar Rally to collect data for a full hydrogen-powered vehicle that they have been developing as part of the GEN Z project.

In this week’s Minute with Mike, we accelerate ahead at the 2021 Dakar Rally. Mike shares the importance of trust throughout the highly dangerous race, explaining that the duo had to rely on one another to safely navigate their route, and had to trust in the strength and reliability of their communications. Speedcast kept the team connected from start to finish and enabled them to bring followers around the world along with them on their journey.
