Prestigious rally wins for Continental truck tyres

The KAMAZ-Master rally team won the Dakar Rally 2017 and the Africa Eco Race 2017, two of the world’s most challenging desert races, on Continental tyres.

Covering thousands of kilometers on dirt roads, rough mountain ridges and desert sand, the premium tyres showed a continuously high performance and optimum durability throughout the different stages of the races.

The two cross-border rallies marked the beginning of a product cooperation between German premium tyre manufacturer Continental and the Russian KAMAZ-Master rally team.

As part of the cooperation, the KAMAZ-Master race trucks as well as support trucks were fitted with Continental tyres.
