“A.S.O is encouraging the participation of hybrid and full electric vehicles on the Dakar and we took the challenge. We are working on the T-Race Rally Dakar 2020 that will be able to tackle the toughest rally in the world. We are delighted to have such a great opportunity. We were in 2012 the first electric motorcycle ever to race an African rally at the “Merzouga Rally”, and after these years of continuous research and development, we are ready for the Dakar. We invite all rally enthusiasts to visit us at the Jeddah Dakar Village, on every Bivouac or at the final Qiddiyah Grand Prix to come test our TACITA T-Race Rally 2020 and see our mobile solar-powered trailer, the TACITA T-Station”, Said Pierpaolo Rigo, TACITA co-founder.
“We are happy about the Rally Raid future, and we know that Alternative Energies will be part of it. The TACITA project and its full electric rally bike is a main development axis. And we are glad to welcome and promote this bike and this team at the start of our first Saudian Dakar in January 2020”, Said David Castera, Dakar Race Director.
