A new milestone for motorsports
The Dakar Rally is the ultimate off-road endurance event. Nearly 5000 miles of gruelling off-road desert racing that push vehicles to the absolute limits of performance and reliability. And until now, no 100% hydrogen-fueled vehicle had ever attempted this challenge.
That all changed in January 2022 when Aramco partnered with leading French engineering company Gaussin, to sponsor a class 8 hydrogen racing truck in the Dakar Rally.
Gaussin has a long and proud history of building innovative products and services for the transport and logistics sector. These include cargo and passenger transport, autonomous driving technologies, and most recently, integrating hydrogen fuel cells into vehicles.
