Nicolas Gibon (FRA) & Jean Pierre Garcin (FRA), T2 Class two winners 2016.

KYB Corporation has continued it’s successful partnership which provides technical support and sponsorship of Team Land Cruiser (TLC) by Toyota Auto-Body.

The winning car was driven by Nicolas Gibon who was accompanied by Jean Pierre Garcin.

Customised KYB specialist sports shock absorbers are fitted to the vehicle, which have a flexible damping force to be able to provide driving stability in a variety of road conditions.

The specification is extremely high, with the stability aimed at enduring 10,000 km on bad roads.

The shock absorbers have a separate tank in order to increase the oil volume required in the extreme heat and for the long distances in the race.

The dampers have a lightweight construction and have an adjustable damping force to provide the responsiveness the vehicle requires on the tough terrains it will encounter.

KYB engineers work closely with Team Landcruiser to test the shock absorbers and the car in extreme conditions, to ensure it can cope with the challenges they will face.
