Oplev Dakar-eventyret igen med BFGoodrich!
copie de 1993
BFGoodrich® har siden 1993 vundet Dakar 15 gange med fem forskellige bilproducenter, nemlig Mitsubishi, Volkswagen, Mini, Peugeot og Toyota.
The American brand won the Dakar for the first time in 1999, with the French Jean-Louis Schlesser and his BFGoodrich®-equipped Renault-engined buggy which reveled in the conditions thrown up by the northwest African terrain to beat the Mitsubishi and Nissan prototypes. In 2000, the 22nd Dakar ran from the Senegalese capital to Cairo, Egypt, and Schlesser’s Renault-engined buggy and its BFGoodrich® Baja T/A tyres proved the combination to beat once again.

BFGoodrich® didn’t equip any of the factory prototypes in 2001, but the BFGoodrich® Rock T/A – a new tyre designed especially for these powerful 4x4 machines – claimed its maiden Dakar victory in 2002 thanks to the Japanese Hiroshi Masuoka and his Mitsubishi Pajero.
The BFGoodrich® Rock T/A and Mitsubishi went on to enjoy an unbeaten spell that lasted until 2007. BFGoodrich wins the Paris-Dakar Rally with Stéphane Peterhansel (Mitsubishi Pajero). BFGoodrich®-equipped cars also finished second and third

Following the cancellation of the 2008 rally, the Dakar switched from Africa to South America where BFGoodrich® introduced a brand new tyre – the BFGoodrich® All-Terrain – which was engineered to match the performance of the latest-generation factory Mitsubishi and Volkswagen prototypes and address the challenges inherent in the geography of the event’s new location. The BFGoodrich® All-Terrain hit the ground running to claim the 2009 Dakar with Volkswagen’s Giniel De Villiers.
The following year, an evolution of the tyre, the All-Terrain+, helped Carlos Sainz to clinch victory for the same team in 2010
Nasser Al-Attiyah made it three-in-a-row for the German Volkswagen in 2011.
In 2012, after winning with the Renault-powered buggy, the Mitsubishi Pajero and the Volkswagen Race Touareg, BFGoodrich® triumphed again, this time with the Mini ALL-4 Racing of Stéphane Peterhansel.
BFGoodrich® resumed its winning ways in 2017 with the victory of Stéphane Peterhansel (Peugeot 3008 DKR) who spearheaded a one-two-three finish to notch up the tyre firm’s 13th Dakar success.
Carlos Sainz, Peugeot Sport and BFGoodrich® won the 2018 Dakar, which finished in Cordoba, Argentina
The 2019 Dakar saw Toyota Gazoo Racing win the famous event for the first time with Nasser Al-Attiyah who scored his third Dakar victory.
In 2020, BFGoodrich celebrated its 16th victory on the Dakar rallye with Carlos Sainz in Mini X-Raid !
