KYB is off on the Dakar rally

KYB-Toyota-DakarAn ex-colleague of mine met Charley Boorman shortly after he had completed his first Dakar and his hands were, well, in need of substantial moisturisation.

So when this Toyota popped into my inbox I had to take a little look. It’s the Toyota Auto Body Team Land Cruiser entry for 2014.

KYB is providing technical support and sponsorship for the vehicle which, you won’t be too surprised to hear, is fitted with customised shocks to cope with the wide variety of terrain it will cover.

The shocks are designed to withstand 10,000km on tough terrain and have strong seals to prevent desert sand working its way in.

You can see a video of the car and components being tested for the 2014 event, which passes through Argentina, Chile and Bolivia, at youtube.com/KYBEurope.
