Dakar 2021


It is the world's largest and toughest rally, The Dakar. An annual rally raid for cars, trucks, quads and motorcycles in South America.


The Dakar, since 1979

The history of the Dakar Rally started in 1979 and took place in the most impressive deserts. The Dakar is one of the greatest sporting challenges in the world. In the past drivers drove from the French capital Paris to the Senegalese capital, Dakar. Due to security threats in Africa and to ensure the safety of the organization, the Dakar rally has moved to South America in 2009.


A total experience

Dakar is more than just a combination of speed and racing. Participants are continually faced with harsh conditions, fatigue, doubts and technical problems. Aside from the rankings, all participants are motivated by their determination and the dream they have. Whether they drive a motorcycle or quad, in a truck or a car, all participants share the same ambition to surpass themselves. Common dreams and aspirations ensure that competition and solidarity are in close harmony during the Dakar Rally.
