Dakar 2008: Rally PanAm welcomes Dakar Rally sponsors

Teamreport: Just 7 weeks before the start of the Dakar Rally, the US-based Rally PanAm is joined by several very important sponsors. Already backed by major sponsor Top Oil, Klim riding gear, and San Francisco motorcycle bazaar Scuderia West, the team welcomes APL and Aladdin Freight.

APL (American President Lines) and Aladdin Freight help Rally PanAm move several shipping containers full of race bikes, support trucks, gear and spare parts from the United States to Europe and back. Unlike the European teams that have dominated African cross-country rallying for decades, Rally PanAm builds and tests all of its equipment in the United States. Rally PanAm uses the expertise of the vast American off-road industry to develop its rally bikes and custom Ford F-350 assistance trucks. With the logistical help of APL and Aladdin Freight, the team’s equipment will arrive in Lisbon, Portugal in time for the start of the Dakar in early January.

Rally PanAm’s lead rider, Jonah Street, aims to lead the field of top international riders into Dakar at the finish of this 16-day, 6000-mile event.
