What is HIMOINSA Team?

HIMOINSA’s connections with motor sports and the Dakar Challenge go back a long way. This commitment and our past involvement in the most extreme rally raid is demonstrated by our backing and sponsorship of the Spanish rider and nine-times finisher of the Dakar, Miguel Puertas. HIMOINSA Team was established to fulfil our goals, with a clear remit: to provide power through our experience stemming back more than 30 years.

We have set up our own team, putting all our faith in the riders Miguel Puertas, Rosa Romero and Antonio Gimeno, as well as the
entire technical crew and mechanics.

Philosophy and values

Our mission is founded on the core values associated with a spirit of adventure: solidarity, camaraderie, effort and the will to go further. People come before business and sports interests.

We have built a diverse and caring sports team, which combines strength and speed with energy, commitment, experience, youth, enthusiasm and a well-established track record. The track record of an international business group with a great workforce.


As a team, we endeavour to strengthen our position by offering a quality end-to-end service to our riders, making a big impact on
the top teams. We want to celebrate our first year at Dakar 2015 arriving on the podium in Buenos Aires with all our raiders completing the race.

Our driver Miguel Puertas aims to do something that has never been achieved before by a Spanish rider: complete 10 Dakar rallies back to back. Meanwhile, Rosa Romero will fight to become only the second Spanish woman in history to reach the final podium and rank among the top female riders in the race. Antonio Gimeno’s aim is to come in as high as possible in the motorcycle category while supporting his team mates.
