Our friends in the Toyota Dakar Rally team is working hard day and night, at night the mechanic team relies on the Elwis PRO series to light up the dark and dusty working area.
So far no problems, Says driver Mr. Antanas – even in sandstorm and heavy rain.
The only way to complete the Dakar is through a combination of endurance and determination.
The competitors will have an additional problem to resolve on the 9,000 kilometres to be covered in Argentina, Chile and Bolivia:
adopting and maintaining the right momentum, while the route continuously endeavours to break it.
Depending on the day, both the setting and the pace will change, moving from rocky routes to desert dunes and from endurance stages to extreme sprints. Given the competitors’ inability to recognize clearly identified sections, in particular they must capitalise upon their ability to adapt… and to control their stamina.
The marathon stages definitely reminds them of this basic rule of off-road races.
