Dakar Rally 2016 Edition – Jan. 3-16, 2016

 An enduring challenge through the majestic deserts of South America.

Published on 11.30.2015
Dakar Rally 2016

The Dakar Rally 2016 continues the strong tradition of adventure best described by a motto coined by its founder: “A challenge for those who go. A dream for those who stay behind.” Over the course of almost thirty years, it has generated innumerable sporting and human stories. In Argentina and Bolivia, the drivers and the teams of the Dakar Rally 2016 will discover (or rediscover) the finesse, as well as the harshness of off-road races in the purest sense.

The backbone of the Dakar Rally 2016 alternates difficulty and terrain. Between the contrast in relief, temperatures and surfaces, the drivers and their teams will face a real test of their adaptability and will have to re-assess their performance on a daily basis. Above all, the route will become gradually more demanding, incrementally leading them to the second part of the rally: the most demanding special sections are scheduled in this part, while the distance which has already been covered will take its toll on both drivers and their machines.
