4x4 Rally - Dakar 2020

The Dakar is in Saudi Arabia!

 

No, you read it right and our geography is fine ... The Dakar Rally is moving to Saudi Arabia, after eleven years in Latin America, ten of them in Argentina!

 

The year 2009 marked an important turning point in the history of this legendary rally. After thirty years in Africa, for obvious reasons of safety, the race decided to continue in Latin America.

 

For David Castera, the race director, this new chapter is part of the search for new territories and landscapes for the Dakar. Saudi Arabia can offer so much to the competitors in this demanding challenge.

So, for the next five years, the magical decor of the Middle East will be hosting this fabulous rally!

 

From January the 5th to the 17th, 2020, Saudi Arabia is where it's at!
