Van Kasteren and Becx with Team De Rooy to Dakar Rally

Janus jr van Kasteren and Michiel Becx participate as new members of Petronas Team De Rooy Iveco in the Dakar Rally 2020. Van Kasteren (32) will aim for a high ranking with the Iveco Powerstar. Becx (44) will fulfill the function of fast assistance with a new Iveco Trakker.

Both Dutchmen already have experience in the Dakar, although they did not reach the finish due to technical problems.

Janus jr
van Kasteren participated with truck in the past two years, but both times fell
short just before the finish. On the other hand, he achieved a number of
impressive top 10 rankings. Previously, he gained extensive experience in the
Morocco Desert Challenge and the Baja Aragon with both a truck and an SSV.

Becx made his debut in the Dakar last January with the Mitjet buggy. With that
car, he won a stage in the Morocco Desert Challenge,
