SOUTH AMERICAN OFFROAD RACE
The 2015 Dakar Rally kicks off on the 5th of January in Rosario, Argentina and heads across country towards the Chilean border before diverting north to Bolivia. The race organisers state they “were keen to discover new regions and were won over by the Bolivian landscapes, ranked among the most stunning ones that the continent has to offer.” The final stages of the rally runs through Chile to the finish in Valparaiso on the 20th of January. One significant difference this year is five separate special stages where motorcycles and quad bikes cover different terrain to the cars and trucks. Along with the obvious safety benefits resulting from the separation of vehicle classes, the bikers get to ride “more technical and narrow tracks.” Mark this race in your calendar as a must follow.
