Dakar Overview
Dakar is the most impressive and challenging staged Rally Raid in the world.

In 2014 the race starts in Argentina, racing across varied and extreme landscapes, traveling north through Bolivia, and the Salt Lake at Uyumi, then turning south and racing through Chile to Valparaiso.

History:
The adventure began in 1977, when Thierry Sabine became lost on his motorcycle in the Libyan desert during the Abidjan-Nice Rally. Saved from the extreme desert, he returned to France, enthralled by the landscape he’d experienced and promised himself he would share his fascination with as many people as possible. He then planned a route starting in Europe, continuing to Algiers and crossing the Agadez before eventually finishing at Dakar. He coined a motto for his inspiration:
“A challenge for those who go. A dream for those who stay. ”

Over the course of almost thirty years, it has generated innumerable sporting and human stories.
