The TH-Trucks-GRO team, captained by Rafa Tibau and Alberto Herrero at the controls of their respective trucks, has successfully completed its participation in the Dakar Rally held entirely in Peru where the dunes, off-road and navigation have been the protagonists.

With this edition, Rafa and Alberto have already taken part in the Dakar Rally 36 times. This experience has been demonstrated in the management of the toughest rally in the world, where 36 of the 45 truck teams have suffered at least one roll-over, Tibau being spared this difficulty.

For GRO it has been a challenge and a great satisfaction to see that GRO lubricants for heavy vehicles have overcome the toughest demands that the test demands on the engines, transmissions and other components of competition trucks.

Beyond pure competition, another objective of the TH-Trucks-GRO team was to support the local community in preventing the effects of UV radiation that the Peruvian desert sun causes on the skin. With the collaboration of a local dermatologist they have provided sunscreen products so that hundreds of Peruvian children with low resources can better protect themselves from solar radiation.
