WHAT IS THE ADVENTURE CLASS?
The full rally experience from Paris to Dakar
Without the race against the clock
Riding from Paris to Dakar is a quest that is at the top of the bucket list for for many motorsport enthusiasts. But doing the full race against the clock may not be what you are imagining.
Maybe you are an adventurer seeking new experiences without racing against the clock or maybe you want the opportunity to explore the terrain and test your vehicle and driving skills before joining the full race to Dakar next year.
The adventure category in a nutshell
The adventure category will give you the full experience of the rally as you will share the race and camps with the rest of the participants every day and though you are racing without the pressure of the clock you are required to make it to camp every night in order to continue your trip to Dakar.
Choose your route every day
Each day you can choose your route between at least three options: 1) Doing the full race route but without the time limitations, 2) Doing a part of the race route and then some sections on paved road or 3) The route from camp to camp on the paved road (where available…).
Every night we will go through the options and help you choose the route that fits your driving skills, your vehicle and your team based on the next days terrain. And though you are racing without the pressure of the clock, you are required to make it to camp every night in order to continue your trip to Dakar.
Improve your navigation and sand dune skills
Besides getting a lot of help when preparing for the coming day and discussing navigation and terrain, we also offer you specific training session on driving in rocks, sand, dunes and on the beach along with a thorough introduction to the gps-navigation used in the rally.
