The 1994 event returned to Paris after reaching Dakar, resulting in a particularly grueling event. Pierre Lartigue took Citroën's second win in acrimonious circumstances, as Mitsubishi's leading drivers were forced to withdraw from exhaustion after traversing some particularly demanding sand dunes in the Mauritanian desert that the Citroën crews had opted to skip. Peterhansel's did not compete due to a disagreement between Yamaha and the race organizers over the regulations. Edi Orioli claimed a third title in the bikes category. The 1995 and 1996 events begin in the Spanish city of Granada, with Lartigue racking up wins for Citroën in both years. Peterhansel returned to take a fourth bikes category win in 1995, but lost to Orioli in 1996 because of refuelling problems.

In 2007, 29-year-old South African motor racer Elmer Symons died of injuries sustained in a crash during the fourth stage of the Rally. Symons crashed with his bike in the desert between Er Rachidia and Ouarzazate, Morocco. Another death occurred on 20 January, the night before the race's finish, when 42-year-old motorcyclist Eric Aubijoux died suddenly. The cause of death was initially believed to be a heart attack, but it was later suggested that Aubijoux had died of internal injuries sustained in a crash earlier that day while competing in the 14th stage of the race.
On 15 January 2021, motorcyclist Pierre Cherpin of France died. The 52-year-old Frenchman fell off his motorcycle on 10 January, and a rescue team in a helicopter found him unconscious in the desert. He was rushed to a hospital in Saudi Arabia where he was treated for his injuries. He sustained serious head injuries and cracked ribs, and one of his lungs also collapsed. Cherpin underwent emergency neurosurgery and was placed in an artificial coma. Doctors were initially optimistic about his recovery path and there were no complications after the surgery. He died during the medical transfer from Jeddah to France.
Not that Dakar 18 never had its pretty moments. But even the most empty areas of desert in its successor are contrasted with beautiful sunsets, sunrises, starry nights and lens flare. There is not even any noticeable pop-in.
Last week, Saber Interactive released their latest rally racing sim, "Dakar Desert Rally," to Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. Previously, the team has stamped their name on the off-roading title "SnowRunner," and the "MX" series, so Dakar seems like a natural next step. The game is based on the real-world rally event it takes its name from, with authentic vehicles and tracks pulled from its 2020, 2021, and 2022 racing seasons. To bring Dakar to life, the team digitally recreated over 20,000 square kilometers of terrain in the Arabian desert, in which the current event takes place. The huge map also includes dynamic clock and weather systems to keep gameplay fresh and keep drivers on their toes.
Saber intends to sustain "Dakar Desert Rally" with at least another year of extra content. The first free update comes this month, with additional Saudi Arabia stages. Later this year, custom events and free roam driving are slated to be added. This will open up the full desert map for players to explore. Next year comes custom livery editing along with replay and photo modes. The lack of proper photo tools in the current game is another pain point for me, especially when the map looks so good. Overall, you could argue that all of these features ought to have been included in the retail game at launch.
There's no doubting Dakar Desert Rally is a tremendously challenging off-roader. The setting is really stunning and the large swaths of open desert are a special highlight. Although they may seem desolate and dull at first, emerging from winding valleys or clusters of palm trees into these undulating seas of sand provides a racer with a remarkable sensation of scale.
Just hours before the race started, the Audi team learned they would not be able to use an onboard tire inflation system to improve handling and suspension, a critical tool to maneuver rocky deserts.
The combination of the electric powertrain and high voltage battery carried the EV rally model reliably through the Abu Dhabi desert. The team is unveiling the next generation in EV rally racing with the Audi RS Q-tron E2.
Amid the heat and sand of the Saudi Arabian desert, Covestro 3D printing materials and MakerBot technology aided UK motorsports company, Prodrive, as it produced end-use parts for its 2021 Dakar Rally racing car.
Many automotive manufacturers are seeking the most efficient and cost-effective ways to manufacture end-use parts. UK automotive and motorsports specialist, Prodrive, took that challenge to another level when it needed to enhance the way it makes and replaces parts overnight, in the middle of the desert, in the 2021 Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia.
As part of the Bahrain Raid Xtreme (BRX) team, Prodrive designed and built the Prodrive BRX HUNTER rally car for the race which runs for 14 days, in 40C/104F heat and over 7,500 km/4,660 mi of rugged desert terrain. The cars cover around 500 km/310 mi per day, and support teams only have a few hours for repairs at each staging point. Besides a wide range of onboard spares, Prodrive often needs to make or adjust new parts in the field. These are either made by hand or have to be couriered overnight.
When it came to printing, Covestro recommended a MakerBot METHOD X 3D printer and helped Prodrive create and install a simple-to-deploy mobile additive manufacturing station on a support truck. This enabled Prodrive to adjust or build new parts in the desert during the race.
The 2023 Dakar Rally announced. Upcoming event again held in Saudi Arabia, began on 31st December and final race day will held on 16 January 2023. Only professional motorsports teams or person with strong finance can compete the race.

The figures were taken from top sources, these figures already claimed by top media agencies. Dakar Rally 2023 season will be soon to continue. Top sponsorship signed deals with Dakar which makes it richest desert race in the world.
Put the 911 Dakar on some sand dunes. Immediately. It's near-bliss, with excellent steering response and that screaming flat-six engine sending sand shooting into the sky behind you. In the Moroccan desert, the 911 Dakar drifted around a point-to-point dune course Porsche set up with ease. In that environment, with the swooping terrain and swinging rear end and joyous exhaust note, it produces a tremendous amount of theater. Stay on the power and you really can steer the car through the accelerator pedal, sending you more sideways by the millisecond.
After days of confused reports, Mark Thatcher, 28, his French co-driver, Charlotte Verney, 38, and a mechanic, were officially listed as missing yesterday. Planes have been searching since Monday. The two were last seen Friday along a remote, unpaved and largely unmarked desert route through Algeria and neighboring Mali. The French-organized, 6,000-mile endurance drive from Paris terminates in Dakar, Senegal on the western coast of Africa.
The prime minister's husband Denis flew today to the Algerian desert town of Tamanrasset, 1,200 miles south of Algiers, where the search for his son is being coordinated by the rally organizers and the Algerian, Malian and French governments.
The car rally, which is also sponsored by Le Point magazine and the French radio station Europe No. 1, is one of several staged annually around the world. But it is the only one passing through such remote desert.
Previous participants said the track is marked by gasoline cans spaced every kilometer and it is easy to become disoriented and lost not far from the rally route in the sand or nearby mountains. But they added that the weather is mild this time of the year, and participating vehicles are well stocked with water, food, tools and repair parts. Three Italian journalists covering the rally died in the desert last year.
King of the Hammers is an off-road desert race held each February in Johnson Valley, California. And it is about as tough a race as there is in the United States. More than 400 teams and 30,000 spectators come out each year for this event, which sees Ultra 4 desert runner vehicles drive across harsh off-road terrain and also crawl across large rocks and boulders. Founded in 2007, this race has been known to leave more than a few cars on the side of the track with blown tires and busted axles. The cars used in this race travel at speeds of more than 100 miles an hour and use modified V8 engines that can produce 800 horsepower, as well as 40 inch tires with beadlock wheels. Competitors must complete the 165 mile course in less than 14 hours or be disqualified.
Few things on this Earth are as extreme as racing across the African safari. Yet that is exactly what people do who participate in the annual East African Safari Rally, a race that features more than 1,000 kilometers of timed stages, with each stage being more than 60 kilometers in length. Known to most drivers as simply the Safari Rally, this annual race involves long, arduous driving across rough African terrain and searing temperatures. This is off-road racing taken to the absolute extreme. Contestants have to run through dry desert conditions as well as jungles and flat open plains. The temperatures during the race have been known to climb north of 50 degrees Celsius, leading to many overheated engines and stranded drivers. Known to attract the toughest and roughest off-road racers in the world, this event is truly for people who are crazy. 041b061a72
