Vanessa and Desert Rose have some history. In July 2021 Vanessa took part in and got her finishers medal in the hard enduro madness that is Red Bull Romaniacs, with race assistance and logistics handled by Desert Rose Racing. September 2021 saw Vanessa join Patsy, Harry and Joe take part in the Qatar Desert Baja, a full on desert rallye, with road books, sand dunes and heat. It was hot, very hot and humid, just ask Harry how hot it was. Again rallye support and logistics was handled by Desert Rose Racing.
Vanessa is certainly not done with desert rallies, with her sights firmly set on taking part in the Dakar, she has signed up for The Tunisia Desert Challenge in April this year with race support and logistics provided by Desert Rose Racing.
