Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tyres will show their strength during a 2,000-kilometer journey on rugged African roads, equipping 16 Land Rover Discovery vehicles. Participants driving across the Kavango-Zambezi (Kaza) National Park will be able to rely on Goodyear tyres to conquer tough terrains through the second largest nature reserve in the world.
The setting for the biennial Land Rover Experience Tour is Kavango-Zambezi National Park, the second largest nature reserve in the world, which spans parts of Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Wrangler DuraTrac tyres will equip the Land Rover Discovery – which has proven its flexibility and robustness in countless adventure missions around the globe over the last three decades. Participants can marvel at the untouched animal world, enjoy a taste of the local cuisines and visit Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world.
Besides getting to know the countries, participants will also get to know the people, immerse themselves deeply in their cultures and tradition. They will experience aspects such as sustainability initiatives, as well as animal and nature conservation on site.
The Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac is developed to cope with the toughest terrains, including deep sandy slopes, sandy tracks, thorny savannah bushes and overgrown gravel roads, all of which the participants will encounter during their adventures. For the off-road parts, drivers can benefit from Goodyear’s TractiveGroove Technology, which enhances traction on mud. The Wrangler DuraTrac tyres are also designed to overcome curb-like heights, rapidly evacuate gravel, dirt and mud and automatically improve the vehicle’s traction and lateral stability, while reducing road noise.
“We are thrilled to provide our Wrangler DuraTrac tyres for the Land Rover Experience Tour”, said Mike Rytokoski, Chief Marketing Officer Europe at Goodyear. “It shows once more that when Land Rover wants to push their vehicles to the limit, they use Goodyear tyres.”
Christian Löer, Marketing & PR Director from Jaguar Land Rover Germany: “Our relationship with Goodyear spans many decades, back when their tyres were fitted to the first Range Rover. It continues today with the development of next-generation tyres for our newest vehicles such as the new Land Rover Defender. It goes without saying that we are excited to have Goodyear equip our Land Rover Discovery vehicles on this tour.”
