Dirty little secrets...

I was told a few years ago that some of the Toyota team specials were using Patrol axles...

I believe Hannes is driving a truck as backup for the Nissans. All 3 in the truck are from SA. A driver, navi and a mechanic. I think it is a class T4 truck. I was surprised it was a Renault Truck and not a UD truck..... why Nissan ....flipping WHY??

Renault/Nissan globally in the same stall? I might be mistaken but I recall hearing that Nissan sold UD to Volvo?
