Down and Dirty at Dakar

Dakar RallyThe Dakar Rally is more than an off-road race..It is a test of vehicles and the drivers’ sanity and soul. The distance and environment will destroy vehicles and challenge the physical and mental capacity of the drivers’ and their teams. Action Wipes has long been part of the essential items for many teams. We recently received an email from a participant that happened to find our useful body wipes last year at one of the Bivouacs:

"I first found your product in South America at the Dakar Rally and you provided some sample product for me to use and promote at the Tuareg Rally in Tunisia Africa. The Action Wipes worked brilliantly in the Sahara desert and my teammates from Europe loved them. Fortunately I had saved a couple wipes for the flight home. Wiping down with an Action Wipe while making a 24+ hour international flight made me feel like I was in first class while flying coach! The people around me commented on the refreshing scent and were anxious to get their hands on some Action Wipes.”

With the 2014 Dakar on the calendar for this coming January 5-18, 2014, most racers are in the final stages of packing just to get their vehicles shipped to the staging area in Argentina by mid-December. We salute the racers and their support teams for one of the most challenging sporting events in the world and look forward to some great racing and field shots of Action Wipes!
