J.Juan brakes success in the Dakar
J.Juan’s Side by Side brakes have prevailed in the two categories in which these vehicles compete; T4 and T3. The t4 (SSV) are vehicles closer to the series model marketed by the manufacturer; The T3 (light prototypes) performance can be increased.
In T4 J.Juan’s mastery of the brakes has been spectacular. Among the first 30 vehicles, only 2 (18th and 29th) did not have brakes from the Barcelona brand (Spain). The domain has been overwhelming and devastating. The category was won by Austin Jones (USA), followed by Gerard Farrés (ESP) and Rokas Baciouska (LTU).
In the T3 category there were 22 vehicles among the top 30 that fitted J.Juan brakes, who won 7 of the top 10 places, including the triumph of Francico “Chaleco” López (CHI) and the second place of Sebastian Eriksson (SWE ).
This is the fourth consecutive year that vehicles equipped with J.Juan brakes have won the Dakar in the Side by Side category, as is the case in almost all the major off-road events held in the United States and those organized by the FIA (International Automobile Federation)
Tomorrow, we will release how are the brakes that dominate this mythical race.
