MONSTER ENERGY HONDA TEAM CELEBRATES ‘DAKAR DAY’ 2018

There was a great atmosphere and good vibes at the Dakar Day, the annual meeting which Monster Energy Honda Team and their riders held for the press at the Honda Security Institute facility in Barcelona.

If you wished to experience the full-on Dakarian environment, as lived by the Monster Energy Honda Team, look no further than the Dakar Day. The presentation of the team before the press this year was done so by no less than Tetsuhiro Kuwata, General Manager and Director of Honda Racing Corporation, who accompanied the riders and wished them the best of luck, in the hope that they return from South America with the best possible result

The Honda Security Institute in the Honda Motor Europe Spain complex situated in Santa Perpètua de la Mogoda, Barcelona, hosted the Monster Energy Honda Team presentation for the second consecutive year. With less than two months before the engines of the Honda CRF450 RALLY begin to reverberate through the streets of Lima, the capital of Peru, the five riders of the Monster Energy Honda Team in attendance gave their impressions and expectations for the 2018 edition of the Dakar Rally.

Television, newspapers, digital media and radio flocked to ‘Dakar Day’ to spend an agreeable winter morning rubbing shoulders with the team and were able to get the lowdown on how the Monster Energy Honda Team is structured for each Dakar stage. Also on display were the vehicles that will transport the team and equipment, such as the motorhomes and tents, as well as the support vehicles including the Monster Energy truck. More than 30 communication professionals were lucky enough to get a close-up and a look inside these vehicles in the H.I.S. installations of Honda Motor Europe Spain.

Over the coming ten days, the team will finalise the details before boarding the vehicles in the French port of Le Havre, bound for Lima the capital of Peru.
