R53 Suspension and Century Racing partners for Dakar and X-Country

Updated: Jun 19, 2021

R53 Suspension is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Century Racing, one of the top X-Country car manufacturers.

This partnership will see the Century CR6 vehicles equipped with R53 shock absorbers enter the Dakar 2022 and other X-Country events.

Roger Estrada, owner of R53 suspension:

“R53 Suspension is excited to be working with Century Racing on the development of the CR6 shock absorbers using our own Optiflow technology. The opportunity to work with a company who have already developed a great car with huge potential is a boost for R53. We are excited on this partnership, and we look forward to working together with Century Racing and their team”.

Team manager for Century Racing Julien Hardy:

"We are thrilled to start this new journey with R53. We are small companies but both share ambitious goals. R53 was looking for a partner to help develop their off-road range, and we were looking for the next level for the CR 6. Their technical ability and already impressive list of customers (Gordon Murray and McLaren) give us confidence that we have made the right decision. Furthermore, with the recent and future FIA speed and power limitations coming into play, the emphasis will be more and more on chassis performance, and we believe there is still plenty untapped performance.”.

R53 newly developed X-Country products ST55 and ST60, are lightweight, high performing and use R53 Optiflow Technology.
