Three questions to catering specialist Mireille Andre

What kind of meals are being served to Volkswagen Motorsport during the Dakar Rally?

"Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served buffet-style by the organisers in the bivouac. I take care of the snacks in between or provide meals when the team works long hours at night and the mechanics cannot go to the bivouac."

What was the team's favourite food?

"Small turkey salamis from Mecklenburg, for instance, we had 100 kilograms of those with us and they're all gone. Another thing that pleased most of the team members a lot was hot dogs and sand-cake. And coffee galore ..."

What type of food is being taken along from Germany and what do you buy while you're on the road?

"Beverages we buy along the way. Almost all the food was taken along from Germany and transported across the entire rally route. Merely in Morocco did we buy apples, bananas and eggs. Later, in Mauritania and Mali, there was only little fresh fruit available on the markets."
