They call it the toughest motorsport event in the world.
From its humble beginnings in France in 1978, the Dakar Rally has become the biggest and most well known off-road motorsport event in the world.
It’s demanding, and requires the ultimate in both physical and mental fitness. Just to finish is a huge achievement – and many don’t.
Yet every year over 500 riders, drivers and co-drivers – as well as thousands of support crew – from around the world turn up to take on this torturous 14 day event.
Because the Dakar is much more than just a rally-raid. It’s an incomparable human adventure and the ultimate challenge any off-road racer can face.
