The Hino Champion is back with LITTLE MONSTER
On the Dawn of New Year 2021, it is a great news that Dakar Event 2021 will commence on January 3, 2021 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Despite all pandemic odds, Government of Saudi Arabia and Dakar management took the bold step to go ahead with this great event on Saudi soil.
The rich tapestry of landscapes in Saudi Arabia offers an almost infinite number of permutations to give the route of the Dakar a better flavor. Just as 2020 was a quest of discovery, the 2021 route will be a journey of exploration. Everything will be brand-new, with a completely different route from last year. Furthermore, the fastest sectors, where the difference comes down to raw power, have been trimmed to see the real skills of man and machine.
Hino Team Sugawara, the only Japanese truck brand is ready to take on the challenge again this year on the back of its stellar performance of participating and completing the race since 1991 without fail. Team Sugawara in fact will defend the prestigious title its hold for being No 1 in under 10 liters category for the last 11 years consecutively.
