YPF joins the Desafío Ruta 40
YPF joins once again the Desafío Ruta 40 as one of the main sponsors of this stunning rally-raid competition that will take place from August 26 to September 1 in La Rioja – Belén (Catamarca) – Salta.
YPF has had a long participation in the history of the Desafío Ruta 40 and this year will not be an exception. As part of its participation, YPF will have the privilege of being the naming of the event, which will be known as Desafío Ruta 40 YPF. In addition, YPF INFINIA will be the Official Fuel of the competition, providing participants with the quality and optimum performance required to face the challenges of this demanding race.
Over 100 years of history, YPF has a constant link with motorsports, sponsoring racing teams and categories throughout the country. In this case, the flagship company takes another step forward in its association with motorsports by joining an event of international dimension and with strong federal roots in Argentina.
The 11th edition of the DR40, which will be valid as the fourth round of the second season of the World Rally Raid Championship (W2RC), will have a difficult itinerary where the world’s best riders of the discipline will race 2,804kms along five stages in the north of Argentina. For this, as well as for the whole rally caravan, YPF’s supply chain will play a key role thanks to the wide coverage of service stations throughout the country that will help the logistics of the race.
«We are proud to be part of Desafío Ruta 40. At YPF we are convinced that the values and attributes of sports are aspects that are associated with the history and present of the company. Just as we are sponsors of the soccer, tennis, basketball, field hockey, volleyball and rugby teams, we also have our development in motorsports. And to be able to join as official fuel for a competition of this quality fills us with happiness,» said Santiago Carreras, YPF’s Institutional Affairs and Communications Manager.
