Dakar challenge is back and includes a combined event in the baja 500 and reno race. Australsian Safari competitors also get another go at it.

“Having the Challenge at Safari will bring enthusiasm, passion, and the Dakar fever throughout Australia and the Asia Pacific region.”

Last year, only those competing in Safari’s MOTO category were eligible for the Dakar Challenge. For 2013, amateur AUTO competitors will also have their shot at a free Dakar entry.

Other events chosen to form the Dakar Challenge calendar are: Tecate Score Baja 500 in Mexico, Desafio Ruta 40 in Argentina, Toyota Kalahari Botswana 1000 Desert Race in Botswana and Reno 500 in USA.

That's the "Camel Marathon" a completely different event to the "Camel Trophy" and never acheived the same level of worldwide publicity as the four wheeled event.

Dont think it will be in the USA, its not a free country anymore. (sorry guys)

South America is is and thats where it will stay I reckon for at least another 3-5 years.[/QUOTE]


BB,

I agree that the USA is changing into something we will soon not recognize! Even tho we have a home there, wifey and I are moving to Peru to dedicate full time to the moto tours...

Eagerly waiting (with bated breath ) the truth that will come on March 21st!

Cheers!

This just out!

Looks like Peru will be part of the Dakar Series this year!

http://www.andina.com.pe/Espanol/not...13-451226.aspx

October 3 to 6, 2013 in the dunes and mountains of the department of Ica, Peru it will take place. Great news for those of us who live and work in Peru!

Guess who is going to organize a 1-week budget ride to take it in?? Any takers? ONLY for ADV inmates!

Im very disapointed that it covers such a small piece of South America, but delighted that Bolivia is in. Bolivia must be one of the best places to ride on earth.

Im also happy about the marathon stages, but looking at that route I have to say that the Dakar has lost a lot of its allure...for me any way.

No Peru!?

Wow! No Peru!

That makes it very difficult (being based in Peru) to organize a trip to pick up part of the Dakar. Hmnnn.... Will have to think on this one a bit...

VERY happy for Bolivia tho! I plan to be riding in Bolivia thru the summer of 2014... maybe I should go to the Dakar in Bolivia in January and just leave my bikes there..

Anyone wanna help??

Dakar 2015 news

from http://www.motoryracing.com/dakar/no...no-dakar-2015/



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.

I'm quite surprised by the response of Ecuador. They must be smoking something to give up on an opportunity like that.

The current government in Ecuador is very pro-green and has massive support from the people, the elections earlier this year were a landslide again, and they are being very tough with mining companies on environmental items and plan on getting even tougher etc............so doesn't surprise me
