BFGoodrich® strengthens its participation to 4x4 off-road competition

BFGoodrich takes more and more leadership in specialized 4x4 off-road events, given its worldwide leadership in product and in races. That’s why, the Baja Aragón Teruel changes its name to include “Trofeo BFGoodrich” in it. This clearly shows the commitment of the brand in this prestigious race, which is part of the Baja worldwide championship as well as the Dakar Challenge.

The Baja Aragón Teruel 2017 Trofeo BFGoodrich is a reference in the worldwide championship of off-road raids. BFGoodrich will not only be involved in the race but also in the organization of the event.

In order to make the most of the BFGoodrich tyres’ performance, experienced pilots are required. That’s the case of our two ambassadors, Rubén Gracia & Cristina Gutiérrez, two young Spanish pilots, with a great career in front of them.

Rubén Gracia, 32 year-old and born in Madrid, is fast, effective and reliable. Spanish champion of TT Rally in 2016, he has a great experience in all kinds of race and vehicles, with more than 140 participations.

Cristina Gutiérrez, 25 year-old from Burgos, has already a great experience too and is constantly beating records. In January, she turned into the first Spanish woman pilot to finish the Dakar in the car category. Cristina Gutiérrez is already a real rally-raid Spanish legend.

Isidre Esteve & Jesús Calleja, who are both very well known in Spain, are our two other ambassadors.

Experienced pilot both in Moto and in 4x4, Esteve has always shown a fighter’s spirit. From Cataluña, he participated in the last Dakar edition, overcoming with success the challenge to remain during 10 hours driving and complete the most difficult race in the world.

Jesús Calleja is well known too as a real “all terrain” guy: alpinist, explorer, communicator, motorsport lover… As a pilot, he participated in 2 Pharaohs Rallies (Egypt), in a Dakar Rally (American edition) as well as in the Africa Race.

The next great appointment will be the Dakar, where BFGoodrich is the official tire and where along its history the brand achieved 13 victories. ¡See you soon!
