Dakar 2015 news


The months ranging from one edition of the Dakar to the next game are much. In this period of nearly a year should determine the route of the next edition, the countries that will be involved in the test in future years and start working in different organisational aspects so that everything works to perfection. However, the Dakar Rally has not started too well the period between 2013 and 2014 editions and even though we have the full stroke of the next edition in the absence of determine the exact route, Chile has not given good news.

As I discussed, archaeologists Association, Chile has put many drawbacks to the stages of the Dakar that pass through soil in this country and it seems that unfortunately they were not the only ones. While the 2014 Edition is already defined and will pass by Argentina, Chile and Bolivia, seems that you ASO has received the refusal by Ecuador to host the 2015 Edition. It seems that the Government of Ecuador after receiving a formal proposal by the organizers of the Dakar through the ministries of tourism, sport and heritage coordination has rejected this proposal.

The reasons put forward by the experts of these ministries who have studied the proposal have been very similar to which have resulted in the school of archaeologists from Chile to file a complaint against the Dakar. In fact, a time more the school of archaeologists, in this case from Ecuador, has had much to say about the refusal of this proposal, which also has not convinced leaders of Ecuador to take into account the environmental and visual impact that could have the celebration of this test of large dimensions in their lands.

2014 already on the horizon

While the future of the future editions of the Dakar is defined with Brazil playing in order to test giving a touch more exotic and jungle and leaving behind a more deserted part, the truth is that the only thing that is clear is the Dakar 2014 Edition as mentioned will pass by Argentina, Chile and Bolivia has already begun its enrollment period and future competitors who want to can start forming the lists of the the world hardest RAID.
