Ready for the 2018 Dakar?

The start of the 40th edition of the Dakar rally, which will take place on January 6, 2018 in Lima (Peru) and conclude on January 20 in Córdoba (Argentina), begins to take form with the opening of registration.

The return is approaching. With less than eight months to go before the start, ASO has opened registration on May, 15th. All the information is available on . Participants can already get prepared for the 2018 edition.

Some have already won their entry through the Dakar Challenge, like Tanveer Abdul Wahid on the India Baja, and Xavier de Soultrait on the Afriquia Merzouga Rally. For the others, the next challenge consists of completing an application form to be sent to the organisers before July 15. In the motorcycle and quad categories, the competition department will decide based on experience, while leaving room for newcomers capable of discovering the event.

The dunes in the Ica Desert will take shape in an even more precise manner over the summer for the competitors who will receive their reply, while the list of entries will still be open for the cars and trucks as well as for the new Side by Side category until November 1st. The introduction of these light-weight vehicles, intended to welcome crews coming from even more diverse horizons, is set to continue next January and enters a three-year calendar of regulation modifications.

Do not forget that for this 40th edition, BFGoodrich®, as the official Dakar tire supplier, is giving one (auto) crew the opportunity to discover and participate in the rally offering entry fees as well as tire supplies. Apply before June 16 midnight on .

Conditions available on our website. A great opportunity to be #driverenough and to transform the dream into reality...
