Epic adventure on Dakar 2020.
The legendary Dakar 2020 Rally kicked off on January 5th in Jeddah and is winding its way across thousands of kilometers of tough Saudi terrain. Known as the toughest rally on the planet, the event which started life as the Paris-Dakar before geopolitics created the opportunity to take it further afield, is being held over 12 individual stages and takes in every important region of the country.
Designed to test participants and their vehicles to the limit, the rally produces stunning images of man and machine pitting themselves against the most challenging terrain the organizers can find. From motorbikes and quads, to high-performance cars and trucks, Dakar is the perfect event to showcase the diverse and stunning natural environment that Saudi offers visitors and will help the country reach a new audience of potential tourists.
Qiddiya, the ambitious sports and entertainment district to the west of Riyadh, will play host to the finish line and prize giving ceremony. Anyone interested in witnessing the spectacular vehicles in this unique setting can find more information here on dates, timings and locations.
