Dakar Rally

In 2007 Katech provided the powerplant for the Ronn Bailey Motorsports team competing in the Dakar rally.  The legendary 10,000km off-road race starts in Lisbon, Portugal and travels through Spain, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania and Mali before ending in Dakar, Senegal.  Its brutal conditions makes finishing the race an honor.  Competitors make their way through the Sahara Desert despite harsh conditions and threatening nomadic tribes.  The Ronn Bailey Motorsports team made it through seven stages before gearbox problems forced them to retire.  View the full story on Ronn Bailey Motorsports Blog.
