If you have ever watched the Dakar Rally (i.e the crazy race through the desert from Europe to Africa – though recently held in South America due to security concerns) you will know it’s an advertisers heaven… Why?

It has a tens of millons of people watching it and that means Decals all over the motor bikes, 4WD’s, Trucks and support vehicles. It attracts the big names of motor sport such as:

  • Renault 4
  • Land Rover
  • Range Rover
  • Mercedes-Benz G
  • Volkswagen
  • Iltis
  • Pinzgauer
  • Toyota Land Cruiser
  • Mitsubishi Pajero/Montero

 

What this means is that alot of Decals need to be removed. For such large spaces, then the Wonder Wheel is perfect as is a very fast way to take of the decal (and without the mess of glue being on the surface when using a tool such as a heat gun)

So if you compete in any motor sports that has a lot of marketing on the vehicles and hence, plenty of stickers, vinyl signs and decals, then hopefully we can make your job easier.

By the way – the Dakar is an extremely dangerous race for the drivers as shown below (except the guy removing decals)
