The 37th edition of the Dakar Rally, universally recognized as the toughest off-road contest on the motorsports calendar, brings the competitors over a route of 9,000 kilometers, 5,000 of which are against the clock.

Over its storied history, Dakar has become the ultimate test of man and machine, allowing a select few the opportunity to claim victory or just finish this extreme challenge.

After 30 years in Africa, the rally moved in 2009 to South America. The spirit of the race has not changed, and this year’s event will test participants’ navigation skills, endurance, and determination to the limits through 13 demanding stages. Buenos Aires, Argentina, will host both the start and finish.
