The DAKAR Route 2010 (c) www.dakar.com

The Rally

Traditionally the Paris/Dakar Rallye, the Rally has not started in Paris for some years. Until 2008, however, the Rally did finish in Senegal at Dakar and the famous Lac Rose. Following terrorist threats in 2008 - primarily in Mauitania - the race was cancelled.

The Dakar organisers did an amazing job and relocated entirely new routes to South America in 2009 and 2010 sees these routes extended and refined.

Starting in Buenos Aires on the first of January the route heads north over the mountains to the Atacama desert in Chile then south to Santiago, Mendoza and back to BA. Over 9000 competitive kilometres.

The full route has now been published on the Dakar website showing the daily stages.
