ZF is a leading worldwide automotive supplier for Driveline and Chassis Technology. ZF and KAMAZ enjoy a partnership at the highest stage, because nowhere else can ZF demonstrate the capacity of its systems and components better than in motorsports. ZF not only supplies KAMAZ trucks for the road, but also for the very successful Rally Dakar trucks from KAMAZ. The experience gained in racing is used in research and development work for the automotive industry, providing many advantages for each and every truck driver.

In 2013 Kamaz celebrated its  eleventh victory in the truck class since 1996 with three trucks on the podium. The race trucks are equipped with a manual ZF-Ecosplit transmission and benefit from the Servoshift pneumatic shifting assistance. Other components supplied by the German company also proved their qualities: The ZF VG 2000 all-wheel drive transfer gearbox, the MFZ 430 clutch from ZF Sachs and also the ZF-Servocom steering.
