History & Race Report
In 1991, Hino Motors became the first Japanese truck manufacturer to enter the Dakar Rally—known as the “world’s most grueling rally,” where as few as 20.5 percent of entrants actually cross the finish line. Since its very first year in the race, Hino has finished all 28 races it started.
