Universally recognized as one of the most grueling and challenging motorsport events in the world, the Dakar is a tremendous showcase for Motul’s products. Successfully involved for many years through technical partnerships with competitors in all categories, the international lubricant specialist stepped up in 2018 to become a Major Partner with the event.

Performance and reliability are paramount: on the mechanical side, every single component, lubricant and accessory plays its part while the terrain, climate and endurance required by competitors can be punishing. The Dakar offers Motul the perfect living laboratory in which to test and develop its full range of products under the most extreme of conditions. Carried out in conjunction with some of the world’s most successful factory teams such as HRC, Polaris, Toyota Auto Body, Motul offers its partners specially adapted lubricants and coolants from its Motorsport Line (Auto) and Factory Line (Powersports), particularly from the 300V range for high performance and maximum protection.

During the event itself, competitors can count on the advice and expertise of Motul’s Motorsport Technical Team which works on prestigious, exacting events such as MotoGP™, 24 Hours of Le Mans or Isle of Man TT. For the Dakar, they are present at every Service Centre with the Motul Racing Laboratory: an invaluable service offered to all competitors is a daily oil analysis to ensure it is performing at its peak, whether they use Motul oils or not.

Performance matters elsewhere, as do values which are shared by Motul and Dakar. Supporting each other on the ground, going the extra mile and sharing things together led Motul to the creation of a prize highlighting these human values. The ‘Epic Story by Motul’ highlights ingenious, brotherly and brave competitors. Finally, Motul is also proud to support the ‘Original by Motul’ riders, the true gladiators who come with no assistance or backup. By giving them some recognition, as well as more basic comfort at bivouacs, their chance to shine during the rally is increased.

BFGoodrich® was thrown into Off-Road competition in 1973, in the United States. It was more than 20 years later that the American brand of tires attacked an All-Terrain Rally- the longest and most challenging in the world, the DAKAR Rally.

BFGoodrich are once again, the official tire supplier of the DAKAR 2019.

Indeed, at BFGoodrich® we do things a little differently. It doesn’t matter if it’s blazing trails or busting our tail – we will always push harder than the competition. And we set out to prove that every day.

Most laboratories are clean. Not ours. The dirt is our lab, where we innovate through motorsports – like the Dakar Rally. Hundreds of kilometers will have to be crossed against the time, blazing sun, dust, rocky terrains, jumps, sand, mud and torrential rain: An All-Terrain tire will be able to give the best performances in every condition.

That’s why BFGoodrich® is official tire supplier of DAKAR 2019. Its tires are chosen by the best drivers for its qualities of longevity, robustness and adaptability.

BFGoodrich® users are not the kind of drivers that just sit back and watch. They’re hands-on, they take-the-wheel and actively seek the opportunity to prove themselves- never quitting until the job is done. Renowned for their toughness and performance, BFGoodrich® tires give drivers the opportunity and means to live their passion, to live their dream!

Get ready to witness the punishment our desert race tire can take when the Dakar Rally kicks off in Lima, Peru in January. BFGoodrich® Tires will be on many competitors’ vehicles and the preferred choice of numerous amateur competitors whose prime objective is to survive to the finish line.

Company founder, Soichiro Honda, once declared that "racing improves breed" and decided to put the theory into practice by taking a team to the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy in 1959 - thus beginning a long, epic journey that continues to this day.

Honda is the world’s largest and most successful motorcycle manufacturer and makes more internal combustion engines than any other organization. But the company’s scale and achievements are powered more by human emotions and passion than metal valves and pistons.

Joy is a fundamental emotion for Honda and the company combines the joy of buying, selling and creating with respect for the individual. On a corporate level, it is dreams that inspire Honda to create innovative products that enhance mobility and benefit society.

Honda’s association with the Dakar goes back many years and during nine years of participation between 1981 and 1989, Honda won no fewer than five times.

Since the return of Team HRC and the CRF450 RALLY to the world’s toughest race, Honda has gone from strength to strength, collecting ever more victories and relying on the latest cutting-edge mechanical technology. In recent editions of the Dakar, Honda has been the most successful manufacturer, accumulating the greatest number of stage victories in the precedent five editions of the Rally. But the Dakar is not known as the World’s Toughest Race for nothing and there has been a fair share of accidents and drama along the way. Sometimes is not possible to make real our dreams.

Besides being the brand, which has achieved the highest haul of stage wins in recent years, the 2019 edition will show how innovative Team HRC has become. The revamped squad - fielding some of the most promising youth talent and experienced riders that the race has seen in recent years – will be at starting ramp with great hopes. Team HRC will be in the fray once again in this 2019 edition, as committed as ever to bringing home the top honours with the final victory in our goal.

After the great success of Kärcher cleaning centers at the last six Dakar Rallies, the cleaning specialist will be an official supplier to the rally next year, too. Global market leader Kärcher will ensure that vehicles are kept clean by erecting cleaning stations with extra powerful professional pressure washers. All teams will be able to have their vehicles cleaned thoroughly with pressure washers before they are prepared overnight to hit the road the next day.

The service was highly appreciated during the last editions of the Dakar Rally; in 2017 about 500 racing and support vehicles were washed in the Kärcher cleaning center – contributing in this way to the safety of the racing drivers. The assistance demonstrated the efficiency of the company’s equipment even in tough conditions. The washing water used at the stations was collected and recycled.

Glacial water is the only highly alkaline water 100% Peruvian, produced under the demanding HACCP quality standards, which guarantees the prevention and maximum reduction of food risk. Consuming glacial water helps to eliminate toxins, combats fluid retention, prevents aging, regulates body temperature and facilitates digestion.

The company supports national athletes who need a good source of hydration for their performance, we also sponsor sporting events where we promote our campaign #EncestaTuBotella (score your bottle) with which we try to ensure the bottles do not end up as garbage and thus be able to recycle them turning them into blankets. They are then delivered to the coldest areas of Peru like: Ticlio Chico, Pamplona Alta and Pachacutec. This year, thanks to this initiative, we were able to donate 4723 blankets in 8 departments of the country, which motivates us to reach more spaces and more people.

For the 41st edition of Dakar 2019 in Lima, we will be present for the first time offering quality hydration to all participants and spectators and where our mission of social and environmental responsibility will be present throughout the event through recycling activations.

Come and reduce the impact, not the speed with Glacial!
