Le Dakar 2017
The roaring 40s
THE ROARING 40S
For its 40th edition, the 10th to be held in South America, the Dakar rally is revisiting the Pacific Ocean and the dunes of Peru, which drivers and riders will tackle after a few days sampling the delights of the capital, Lima. Competitors will then head through to Bolivia, for a welcome rest day in the festive atmosphere of La Paz. Argentinian aficionados top the podium when it comes to enthusiasm and good humour, and the most joyous of them will be waiting to acclaim the riders in Córdoba, host to the Dakar finish line for the first time.

Marathon: a double dose for motorbikes
MARATHON: A DOUBLE DOSE FOR MOTORBIKES
The 2018 route includes two marathon stages that will require of the riders a crucial virtue during a rally: stress management. Between La Paz and Tupiza (stages 7 and 8), all categories will be concerned, as the assistance vehicles are not invited to the Uyuni bivouac. Then, between Salta and Chilecito (stages 10 and 11), the bikes and quads will be directed toward a dedicated bivouac, while the other categories will make a stop.
“Original by Motul”: authentic adventurers
“ORIGINAL BY MOTUL”: AUTHENTIC ADVENTURERS
In the Dakar, there are hard-core adventurers ready to take on every challenge the rally has to offer. Participating with modest means, they decide to perform maintenance on their vehicles on their own, their only resource being the content of a kit transported by the organisation, available at each bivouac. After the track and the dunes, another “day” begins for the “Malle Motos”, now dubbed “Original by Motul”. This year, 28 of these mechanicdrivers are expected at the Lima departure (vs. 19 in 2017).
Side by Side: act II
SIDE BY SIDE: ACT II
Since the 2017 edition, a fifth title has been added to the Dakar. This one is for crews driving light buggies with an engine displacement of less than 1050 cc. The first winners were the Brazilian duo Leandro Torres – Lourival Roldan. But the competition will be tougher next January in this promising category, where the number of participants has almost doubled this year due to new customised regulations.
