The second Renault Trucks Adventure is moving ahead at great pace. The expedition, known at the Cape to Cape, is set to depart North Cape (Norway) on 1 March and arrive in Cape Town (South Africa) on 1 July 2009. For the 16 weeks of the expedition, six Kerax and six Sherpa units will brave extreme conditions across three continents.


The Renault Trucks Cape to Cape adventure will travel from North Cape (Nordkapp) in Norway to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. Six Kerax and six Sherpa units will travel more than 30,000 kilometres between the extreme north and the extreme south and endure harsh weather conditions from bitter cold to intense heat and pass through some of the world’s most arid deserts.

The expedition will get underway with a European segment, crossing Russia en route to Istanbul. Next, a Middle-East stage will follow and the adventure will continue with an African segment, notably through Egypt, Kenya and Tanzania. The adventure ends in the Cape.

For Kerax and Sherpa teams alike, Cape to Cape will be the perfect opportunity to test Euro 4 and Euro 5 equipment and technology: SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction), the exhaust gas after-treatment solution chosen by Renault Trucks will be severely tested. Renault Trucks will have a fantastic opportunity to promote its technological choices and products throughout the course of the expedition, whether or not the manufacturer is present in the countries traversed. Many other events will be organised to enliven the sixteen-week journey.

There is no doubt that this new edition Renault Trucks adventure will fit perfectly into the mould of the Renault Trucks previous adventures, which have included the Silk Road, Croisière des Sables and Ténéré missions.
