​The year started with a great victory for FPT Industrial. Its Cursor 13 engines have, in fact, powered the Team Petronas De Rooy Iveco in the Africa Eco Race, placing first in the truck category and fourth in the overall ranking. 

The race, which celebrated its 10th birthday this year, started on December 31st in Monaco and continued for twelve stages throughout Morocco and Mauritania, while the finish line was in Saint-Louis, Senegal. This edition gathered more than one hundred vehicles and nearly 200 riders at the starting line: an impressive number that didn't scare Gerard van de Rooy and its co-pilots who won due to their talents and to the powerful FPT Industrial engines. 

These 13-liters engines have been especially engineered for this challenging race, being able to reach a maximum power of up to more than 1,100 hp and a maximum torque of up to more than 5000 Nm. Their reliability, instead, was proved by FPT Industrial's long-lasting experience in on-road long haul missions and in the previous editions of other competitions, such as the Dakar, which De Rooy won in 2012 and 2016. A long-lasting victorious presence: FPT Industrial participated in the last 7 editions of the race and is an Official Supplier of the Dakar rally since 2017.​ 

In this video you can experience all the emotions and adrenaline of this exciting competition.
