Iveco and FPT Industrial at Dakar 2013: a Spotlight on the Engines

Iveco and FPT Industrial are participating at the Dakar 2013 rally as official sponsors to Team Petronas De Rooy Iveco. They will once again supply the team from the Netherlands with vehicles, engines and spare parts, continuing a partnership which saw them take the top prize at last year's event.

Two Iveco 4x4 New Trakkers (Evolution 3), two Iveco 4x4 New Trakker (Evolution 2) and one Iveco Powerstar will race across South America, each of them equipped with a Cursor 13 engine from FPT Industrial. The vehicles will be driven by Gerard de Rooy, Miki Biasion, Hans Stacey, René Kuipers and Jo Adua. They will depart on 5 January from Lima, Peru and are expected to arrive at the finish line in Santiago, Chile on 20 January.
