Janus jr van Kasteren and Michiel Becx participate as new members of Petronas Team De Rooy Iveco in the Dakar Rally 2020. Van Kasteren (32) will aim for a high ranking with the Iveco Powerstar. Becx (44) will fulfill the function of fast assistance with a new Iveco Trakker.
Both Dutchmen already have experience in the Dakar, although they did not reach the finish due to technical problems.
Janus jr van Kasteren participated with truck in the past two years, but both times fell short just before the finish. On the other hand, he achieved a number of impressive top 10 rankings. Previously, he gained extensive experience in the Morocco Desert Challenge and the Baja Aragon with both a truck and an SSV.
Michiel Becx made his debut in the Dakar last January with the Mitjet buggy. With that car, he won a stage in the Morocco Desert Challenge, in which he already won the SSV classification.
Petronas Team De Rooy Iveco will participate in the Dakar Rally with four or five trucks. The team hopes to be able to provide more information about the names and numbers in the short term. This depends on the outcome of conversations with, among others, Iveco.
