Tele Radio rides once again along with Firemen Dakarteam

Posted on November 12, 2021 at 10:27 am

Tele Radio has extended its sponsorship contract with the Firemen Dakar team and will once again be visible on the firemen’s truck. In January 2022 they will participate in the grueling Dakar rally in Saudi Arabia.

The Firemen Dakar team will once again take on the desert. From January 2 to 14, the grueling competition will take place in Saudi Arabia. The start of this 44th edition of the Dakar rally is in Ha’il and goes via Riyadh to Jeddah. Along the way, participants will encounter the huge Empty Quarter. It is an area as gritty as it is mysterious, with vast expanses of sand and dunes, an area where even the heat-prepared firefighters will have to push themselves to the limit to stay in the race.

Tough IVECO Powerstar

The crew of the Firemen rally race truck, including the maintenance crew, consists entirely of firefighters. They once started with a reconditioned fire engine, but they now drive a tough IVECO Powerstar developed by Dakar icon Gerard de Rooy. Driver and team owner Richard de Groot will drive the rally together with navigator Mark Laan and chief mechanic Jan Hulsebosch.

Hoisting application sponsored

Tele Radio is visible not only with the familiar logo on the Dakartruck, but also with the hoist application put into use by the Firemen Dakarteam last year. This sponsored hoist can be hung both on the arm on the service truck, to load things on the roof, and on an overhead rail in the hospitality truck. This truck has a large luggage compartment at the back with a rail system for easy loading and unloading of items.
