Dakar 2008: Disappointment for Renault Trucks and its teams

Renault Trucks supports the hard decision taken by A.S.O. to cancel the 30th edition of the Dakar Rally, one day before the beginning of the race, because of terrorist attacks threatening the event. Two Renault Kerax, supplied by the manufacturer, were scheduled to take turns on the bivouacs to provide maintenance services to the competitors entered in the race itself, race assistance or pure assistance, that is to say some 30 Kerax, not counting the six vehicles of the organiser.

Six employees of Renault Trucks and its private dealers, all specialists in their respective field, were part of the adventure. For many of them, it was a "dream come true" and their disappointment is huge. The cancellation of the Dakar Rally this year does not question the participation of Renault Trucks’ Kerax to a future edition of this mythical adventure race
