The former race known as Paris – Dakar, originated in 1979 and soon enough became known as one of the toughest races in the world for motor drive vehicles. The race initially was held from Paris (France) to Dakar (Senegal) but for publicity reasons both the start as well as the end city have often been changed in the last couple of years. This is when the race adopted a new name; Dakar. Over the years the Dakar rally has attracted thousands of race enthusiasts enjoying the large caravan passing through their country and all the attention it attracts.
