From July 9 through 13, the finished HINO500 Series racing truck scheduled to enter Rally Mongolia 2014 underwent a shakedown at Hino Motors' Ibaraki Test Course to evaluate its suspension settings and performance. The two drivers, Yoshimasa and Teruhito Sugawara, came away with a good feeling for the truck, which has been evolving through extensive discourse with Hino developers.
