DAKAR 2017 : EMBARQUEMENT AU HAVRE !

, , ,

Cette semaine, les préparatifs de la plus grande et dure course au monde en Rallye Tout Terrain se terminent sur le port du Havre. Vérifications techniques dans la pluie et le froid, suivies de l’embarquement sur le bateau qui portera, pendant trois semaines sur l’Océan Atlantique, les véhicules jusqu’en Argentine.

Cette année encore, Xtremeplus Polaris Factory Team est l’équipe qui engage le plus de véhicules, toutes catégories confondues : 5 Polaris RZR 1000XT+30 en catégorie SSV dont trois nationalités différentes, 1 Toyota en T2, 4 camions d’assistance, 2 véhicules d’assistance légers et un total de 32 personnes.
Cette année, ASO a créé une catégorie SSV, Polaris débarque donc en force pour défendre le titre suprême remporté déjà par 5 fois (5 victoires au Dakar en T3 Light).
Cette année, la concurrence sera rude car une équipe espagnole a inscrit trois SSV Yamaha non officiels. Mais la course sera très difficile tant par la configuration du terrain que par les écarts de températures entre le froid de l’Altiplano bolivien et la canicule argentine. Xtremeplus Polaris Factory Team va donc tabler sur son expérience et la fiabilité de ces RZR ainsi que celle des pneus MAXXIS LIBERTY et des produits MOTUL.

DAKAR 2017: BOARDING AT LE HAVRE!

, , ,

This week, the preparation for the biggest and hardest cross country race in the world are finalized at the French port of Le Havre: Technical scrutineering took place under the cold rain, followed by the ship loading of all vehicles that will be transported to Argentina, across the Atlantic Ocean during the next three weeks!

This year, Xtremeplus Polaris Factory Team is the team that entered the most vehicles, all categories included: 5 RZR 1000XT +30 in SSV with three different nationalities, 1 Toyota in T2, 4 assistance trucks, 2 light assistance vehicles and a total of 32 people.

This year, ASO created the SSV category, and Polaris comes strong to defend the title they have obtained 5 times (5 Dakar victories in T3 Light).

In 2017, the competition will be hard. A Spanish team has registered three Yamaha SSV – non official.  The configuration of different terrains and the extreme temperature, between the Bolivian Altiplano and the heatwaves in Argentina, will make this race quite difficult. However, the Xtreme Polaris Factory Team is counting in their experience and the reliability of its RZR, their MAXXIS LIBERTY tires and the MOTUL products.
