The domination of the Kamaz team continued in 2018 with the third victory for Eduard Nikolaev, despite the unsuccessful attacks of Federico Villagra. But among the 41 trucks expected at the start in Lima, Team De Rooy will be stronger with the return of Gerard De Roy to the Dakar.

A route drawn up in collaboration with the local authorities of each country. Selective sorting and waste treatment programme in cooperation with local authorities. 100 tonnes of waste collected and recycled from the bivouacs,
58 of which are from the “Punto Verde”. Guided tours of the bivouacs organised in collaboration with local authorities, aimed at local people and children from underprivileged backgrounds.
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.
