TireBalls - Rally dos Sertoes

August 8, 2013

The grueling 3000 mile race in Brazil called the Rally dos Sertoes was just completed by a good friend and TireBall user Robert Nahas. Robert is now a 3 time Rally do Sertoes champion after his first place finish hailing from Brazil.  This 3rd win cultivates a dominance in his class since 2005.  He is also the 3 time Brazilian Champion.  Robert raced his Honda 700 XX using TireBalls representing the Mobil RNN Sports team with team mate Ricardo Purri.  Robert said "with the mixture of hard rocky terrain, a lot of dust, and tricky navigation made it a very long race."  He also added "mental balance is very important" and compared it to a "rally chess game."

TireBalls came through in a pinch.  Robert had gone in excess of 400 miles on one flat tire only puncturing one cell.  "Can I use them again" he asked, and TireBalls durable use and longevity was not in question.  Mark Harris, VP of Sales for TireBalls enthusiastic response was "of course you can."  Robert and Mark had kept in touch throughout the preparation process leading up to the race, sometimes texting back-and-forth til late in the evenings.  "We wanted to get this right" Mark said.  "Baja 500 &1000, King of Hammers, Australian Safari, and DAKAR are critical proving grounds but the 'Sertoes' was a whole new ballgame" according to Mark. The diversity of terrain puts the Sertoes right at the top.  

Nahas was also sponsored by Mobil, Honda, Zona Sul Motors, Zaken, Shoei, Tutto Moto, ASW, Foscomiania, ArtMix, Custom Editora, ITP,
