The thirty-ninth anniversary of the toughest competition in the world, 2017 Dakar, is a thing of the past. The marathon desert rally through three countries of Northwest Africa has finished its ninth run in Dakar, the capital of Senegal.
In 2016, the TATRA TRUCKS truckmaker produced a total of 1,326 vehicles, with all manufactured vehicles already sold. As a result, it's the first time since 2008 that Tatra exceeded the symbolic production milestone of 1,000 vehicles and managed to increase production by more than 50 percent on a year-on-year basis.
The thirty-ninth year of the world's most prestigious competition, 2017 Dakar Rally, kicked off in Asuncion, Paraguay. Three racing rally trucks will represent our TATRA brand in the rally. The TATRA Buggyra Racing Team set off for the track of the South-American Dakar with two special TATRA PHOENIX racing trucks and support of three vehicles of the same range, including truck variants with the Euro VI engine.
The ninth year of the Euro-African competition in the footsteps and style of the founder of the famous Dakar, Thierry Sabine, has "launched" racers into real timed stages. The traditional TATRA trump card in the African-fire is Ing. Tomas Tomeček, a triple winner of AER. This year, however, there's another racing TATRA truck appearing on the competition tracks.
