DAKAR 2020


Most laboratories are clean. But not ours. We prefer the dust, dirt and extreme conditions motorsport events like the Dakar throw at us. That’s what truly inspires the innovations our tyres pack. And that’s why BFGoodrich® has been appointed the Dakar Rally’s official tyre supplier. With more than 45 years of motorsport experience under its belt, and with a score of 15 Dakar wins to its name, BFGoodrich® is targeting further success on the world famous cross-country rally in 2020.

Come and join us on the Dakar trail!

Stay tuned: #BFGoodrichDakar #Dakar2020
