Safety

SAFETY: AN OBSESSION

The safety of competitors, spectators and other accredited persons is the organisation’s primary concern. Just like with any other major extreme sporting adventure, the Dakar is not without risk. The organisation makes every effort to limit to these risks as much as possible.
Every year the safety procedures are revised and optimised.

Solidarity

1 MILLION DOLLARS FOR UN TECHO

With “Un Techo”, the rally’s action is focused on emergency housing. For the eighth year in a row, the Dakar has provided its support to this charity which implements wide-ranging initiatives. This will still be the case in 2019.
