The Dakar Rally fit the bill for this extreme racer. It is the toughest motor race in the world and covers 5000 miles of grueling terrain over 16 days. The heart of the race is in the middle of the shifting sands of the Sahara Desert where temperatures can reach 130 degrees every day.
K&N Engineering sponsored ATV overall class winner Machacek in the 2007 Rally Lisboa-Dakar. “He used K&N Air Filters (RU-2780) during the entire race on his Yamaha,” said Robert Hordossy of K&N Filters in Europe. "Our products worked well during the extreme conditions of the Dakar."
