DAKAR 2018

GLOBAL DOMINATION OF DIRT

Most laboratories are clean. But not ours. We prefer the dust, dirt and extreme conditions motorsport events like the Dakar throw at us. That’s what truly inspires the innovations our tires pack. And that’s why BFGoodrich® has been appointed the Dakar Rally’s official tire supplier. With more than 45 years of motorsport experience under its belt, and with a score of 13 Dakar wins to its name, BFGoodrich® is targeting further success on the world famous cross-country rally in 2018.

Come and join us on the Dakar trail!

Stay tuned: #BFGoodrich® #Dakar201 8
