Dakar Classic

The year 2021 marks a major turning point in the history of the Dakar : the arrival of the Classic category.

It is the very essence of this mythical race that resurfaces:  only vehicles that have marked the history of Paris-Dakar in Africa , before 1999, are authorized to participate.

In race conditions of regularity (and not speed) on a course parallel to the rally, 150 renowned drivers give the deception in a thrilling race specially designed for them. In the evening, they meet in the huge bivouac shared by professionals and amateurs in an atmosphere that only top-level motorsport can convey.
