K-TAINER participates in Dakar Rally


Ever since 1987 the Dakar Rally has earn renown as one of the toughest endurance races in the world. This ultimate battle of attrition of man and machine versus nature was waged this year by over six hundred people in over four hundred vehicles, including trucks, quads, motorcycles and cars.

For many years now the Dakar Rally has symbolized human determination and expertise under extreme circumstances, and it is for this reason that K-TAINER shall be entering the 2016 edition as a sponsor to 'Van Velsen Rally Sport'.


Although the race is called the Dakar Rally, after the Senegalese capital of Dakar, the race which is technically a Rally Raid has been held in South-America since 2009. It is no traditional rally in that it requires dedicated off-road vehicles rather than modified vehicles, and the terrain the participants traverse is much tougher than that of a traditional rally stage. The stages themselves hold different lengths, varying from short distances to up to around 550 miles per day. The harsh terrain and great distances demand the very best of the mighty machines and their pilots.

K-TAINER is proud to be a part of this epic competition, and feel confident that together we can produce a good result from the 'Van Velsen Rally Sport' Race Truck.
