The Dakar Rally
Dakar is an extreme, but adventurous race. Tim Coronel explains »you cannot predict what is going to meet you after the next curve or even in 100 meters. Dakar is not for everyone. You have to understand the terrain and trust yourself and your intuition. Else, you get lost.«
Starting from Buenos Aries, motorcycles, trucks, buggies and quads will race through the South American desert. 15 days of competing that demands a lot from the drivers as well as the cars.
During the Dakar 2015, MASCOT also supplied Tim Coronel’s team of mechanics with workwear.
