This way, followers will continuously be updated with all happenings and occurrences around the venture, and can share the team’s emotions and the breathtaking challenges they face while driving the McCormick tractors equipped with BKT tires on the trail of unexplored routes.

The website has three main sections: Expedition, highlighting BKT’s role as a sponsor and tyre supplier including the display of the products equipping the McCormick tractors, that is Agrimax Force and Agrimax RT657 tyres; Drivers, where you can find the six drivers’ profiles enriched by some personal photos and chatter; and Route, narrating in detail the entire expedition by means of comprehensive photo documentation.
