Dakar

No respite… but easy does it. The backbone of the Dakar 2016 alternates difficulty and terrain. Between the contrast in relief, temperatures and surfaces, the drivers and their teams will face a real test of their adaptability and will have to re-assess their performance on a daily basis. Above all, the route will become gradually more demanding, incrementally leading them to the second part of the rally: the most demanding special sections are scheduled in this part, while the distance which has already been covered will take its toll on both drivers and their machines. Welcome to the world of extreme endurance.
