At the start of the season, KW automotive Group congratulates their customers





The success story continues. For the fourth time, Nasser Al-Attiyah wins the Dakar Rally Rally, this time together with Toyota and Reiger. Although he won only two of the twelve stages over a total distance of 8404 kilometres, Nassar Al-Attiyah still managed to triumph with his new Toyota Gazoo Racing Hilux pick-up truck. For many years, the Reiger rally customers have always been at the front of the field.

 

First to sixth place in the final ranking were achieved by customers with dampers from KW automotive's Reiger Suspension brand. From the 408 registered vehicles in the classification categories Car, Truck, Quad, Lightweight Prototype Vehicles, and Side by Side (SxS) as well as Classic, Reiger equipped over 20 percent of the starting field.



In the Truck and Lightweight Prototype Vehicles categories, Reiger customers also celebrated all classification stage victories. With the Audi RS Q e-tron, Audi has launched a new era in off-road rallying. Of the three electric-powered vehicles that competed for the first time this year, the Swedish duo Ekstrom-Bergkvist finished ninth.



Off-road specialist Reiger Suspension plays Champions League in numerous motorsport branches worldwide, including races on paved roads and circuits. In motocross alone, Reiger Suspension has managed to equip a world champion for 24 years in a row.


In off-road motorsport, Dakar is and remains the highlight of the off-road racing world. Whether in the deserts of Africa, South America or on the Arabian Peninsula, there is no other race with higher demands. In the final standings, Qatari Nassar Al-Attiyah and his co-pilot Mathieu Baumel have already taken four victories in Dakar after their victories in 2011, 2015, and 2019.


In the #211 Bahrain Raid Extreme Prodrive BRX, France's Sebastien Loeb came second with teammate Fabian Lurquin, followed by Saudi Arabian Yazeed Al-Rajhi and Briton Michael Orr in the Overdrive Toyota (#205) who took third.



Orlando Terranova of Argentina and his navigator Daniel Oliveras Carreras of Spain (Bahrain Raid Extreme Prodrive BRX #221) finished fourth. South Africans Giniel de Villiers and Dennis Murphy in the Toyota Gazoo Racing Hilux Pickup (#207) finished fifth. Jakub Przygonski from Poland and his German co-pilot Timo Gottschalk in the X-Raid Mini JCW Team Mini (#203) finished sixth.

 

Development partner for Audi Sport

When car manufacturers want to be inventive and cross borders, the decades-long expertise of the KW automotive group is in demand. Audi Sport participated in Dakar with three electrically powered Audi RS Q e-trons equipped with Reiger dampers. The hydraulic power steering in the RS Q e-tron is also a Reiger development exclusive to Audi Sport, as is the integrated lift jack.


In electric rally cars, the front and rear axles are not mechanically connected. Each axle is driven by a motor-generator unit (MGU) from the current Audi FE07. To charge the battery while driving, Audi Sport uses the efficient 2.0-litre TFSI engine from the Audi RS 5 DTM race car.



These three Audi prototypes have already made motorsport history and set new standards as the first representatives through the Dakar event. As already mentioned, the Swedes Mattias Ekstrom and Emil Bergkvist finished ninth. The Audi teams won four stages (T1-Ultimate class) and secured 14 podiums in the daily rankings. The outcome exceeded expectations!



Reiger motorsport teams win in trucks as well

 

The Russian KAMAZ Master off-road trucks were also equipped with Reiger Suspension. The two Ivecos of Petronas Team de Rooy and Mammoet Rallysport Team de Rooy finished on the podium in positions four to six. First place went to last year's winner Dmitry Sotnikov (#500), second place went to Eduard Nikolaev (#505), Anton Shibalov (#501) was third and fourth place went to the fourth KAMAZ Master Truck with Andrey Karginov (#509).



Janus Van Kastern (#504) and Martin van den Brink (#506) finished fifth and sixth with their Iveco trucks. Drivers of off-road vehicles such as the Jeep Gladiator and Ford Ranger will soon also be able to benefit from decades of experience in the tough off-road motorsport world.




The new "Street & Trail" dampers will offer improved ride safety, driving stability and damping reserve, both on unpaved and paved roads. www.reigersuspensions.com
