Rene Brugger

Rene is a proven ace when it comes to driving off-road or building vehicles ready to race or adventure in the dirt. A 7-time off-road racing class champion and a 3-time Baja 1000 class winner, Rene hails from Valle Guadalupe in Baja and now lives in the US.

Rene knows what works and how to make a project the best it can be from a tech and function side. His work on the championship trucks he and Heidi drive and the consistency of the Desert Assassins #16 Trophy Truck are both calling cards to his expertise. In 2017 his truck won the Mexican 1000,  was runner up at the 50th Baja 1000 and was on the overall Trophy Truck podium for year end points with not one DNF.

Humble and quiet, he is a silent master of both smashing some berms in TT’s and 7 trucks and maybe even more talented when spinning the wrenches.
