SERVICE OPTIONS FOR THE REAL WAY TO DAKAR
For service you both have the option of being on your own, bringing your own service team or partnering up with one of the service teams that are already participating in the rally.
It is important that you consider what you need and what from a service team. The organisation will have both medical and technical assistance for you in the track – from the start of the special stage and to the finish of the special stage. If you have a technical or medical issue, we will do everything we can to ensure that your bike, buggy or car comes back to camp. However, this is not a guarantee, so please be sure to read the rules thoroughly.
This means, that the organisation will only assist you in the track during the special stage – outside of this frame, your service team should be able to assist you in case of an issue.
We recommend that you align expectations with your service team before the rally to make sure you can focus on making it to the shores of Lac Rose, Dakar.
1) Be on your own
If you are on your own, you bring and carry your own tools and spares to work on your vehicle and you bring your own tent and food. You will be able to go to local garages in the towns on the route, but inside the camp you are on our own and will not be able to get any support or services from the service teams or the organisers.
2) Bring your own service team
If you bring your own service team, you need to register them as a service team. They will then be allowed to be in the camp with you, and to supply service for you and your vehicle. The sky is the limit in terms of what kind of service you can demand as it is your crew.
3) Buy service from the one of the registered service teams
You can also choose to buy service from one of the registered service teams. In this case it is important that you get a clear understanding of what the service team will provide in terms of transportation, technical assistance in camp, breakfast etc. so you are sure to sign up with a team that meets your needs. You can find a list of service teams further down this page.
