About Our Sponsorships
The Dakar Rally
“A challenge for those who go. A dream for those who stay behind.”
The Dakar Rally is an off-road endurance event, held by the Amaury Sports Organization. Competitors travel across tough terrain in bikes, quads, cars, UTV’s and trucks. This event has been a world-wide sensation since 1979, and continues to inspire competitors and spectators to this day.
The 2017 Dakar Rally will be held January 2-14, spreading across 9000km into Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina. Plantech is excited to be a part of this rally through its sponsorship with one of the Dakar competitors, Arjan Bos, of St. Davids Hydroponics.
St. Davids Hydroponics has devoted their time and expertise into their vegetable products. With two main locations, one in Holland and the other in Niagara-on-the-Lake Ontario, they have become one of the best European bell peppers and eggplant growers in North America.
