Puma Energy, a giant in the global energy market, is preparing to leave its mark in the XII edition of the Desafío Ruta 40 (DR40) with its renowned rally team, the Puma Rally Team, led by the talented Paraguayan driver Óscar Santos. The race, which promises to be a test of endurance and skill, will start next Saturday, June 1st, and will finish on the 7th of the same month, crossing the provinces of Córdoba, San Juan, and La Rioja.

The Desafío Ruta 40 has established itself as one of the most attractive and demanding competitions in rally raid, attracting elite racers and teams from around the world. In addition, it is a crucial platform for emerging drivers looking to test their skills on an international level, being part of the prestigious Camino al Dakar program.

Lucas Smart, marketing manager of Puma Energy for Argentina, commented on the company's participation: "For Puma Energy, it is very important to be present again in the Desafío Ruta 40, a race that is a true milestone in our country, which has become an unmissable event for all lovers of this sport and that, in addition, goes through incredible landscapes."

The presence of Puma Energy in the DR40 not only reinforces its commitment to motorsport but also highlights its connection with the impressive Argentine landscapes, offering a perfect setting for this exciting competition.

The team will be represented by Óscar Santos, a driver who has proved his worth in the competitive world of rally. Accompanied by his co-driver Mirna Pereira, Santos carries the Puma Energy flag with pride and dedication. "We are very proud of our team for their great dedication and preparation, and because they share their commitment to this great adventure with us," Smart added.

Santos, who was the only Paraguayan driver in the 2024 edition of Dakar, will compete in the SSV or UTV category with a Can-Am Maverick X3 FIA. In Dakar, Santos finished eleventh and was the best rookie in his category, proving to be a true contender in the rally world.

The Desafío Ruta 40 traverses impressive landscapes of southern and northern Argentina, presenting a mix of challenging terrains that have witnessed the feats of the most experienced Dakar Rally drivers. This event has become a must for rally raid enthusiasts, offering stages that are both visually spectacular and technically demanding.

The Argentine landscapes, from arid plains to rugged mountains, provide a majestic backdrop for one of the most exciting and tough races in the rally world.
