9 out of the 14 stages from the most prestigious rally in the world won by vehicles with BRAID Wheels.
An electrifying edition of the Dakar Rally comes to an end with a great balance for the teams that equipped BRAID Wheels, in which we highlight:
• More than 60% of the stages in this edition had been won by teams using BRAID Wheels.
• Seven stages won by Sebastian Loeb and Fabian Lurquin in the T1+ category, six of which were consecutive, setting the record for successive stages won in the same Dakar. All of them equipping our Forged Dakar wheels.
• With their great performances in this Dakar, Guerlain Chicerit and Sebastian Loeb have risen to third and first position respectively in the World Rally-Raid Championship.
Our wheels were used in the different categories, from T1+ Modified Cross Country to the increasingly competitive SSV Class, without forgetting the Dakar Classic whose edition this year was won by Juan Morera and Lidia Ruba equipping our Winrace T model.
We can then affirm that our wheels are Dakar-Proof and that the history between BRAID and Dakar goes way back. During the 1980s and 1990s, we supplied our well-known Series 1 Classic wheels. Later, the Winrace T and Fullrace T Dakar models were widely used in the first two decades of the 21st century. Currently, teams and drivers are looking for a great combination between strong and yet light wheels. For this reason, for this edition we have designed, manufactured and supplied forged wheels to meet these requirements while endure the hard Dakar environment.
Congratulations to all the teams; from our side we will continue to support this exciting event.
