Dakar 2014 organizers were eager to discover new and unique terrain for this year’s route, and were won over by what Bolivia had to offer. As the Bolivian landscape is one of the most interesting and diverse in South America, a new route has been specially developed for Dakar Bolivia. The drivers will pass from Salta in northern Argentina into Uyuni in Bolivia, where they will undertake a two day “marathon” stage around the south of Bolivia. During a marathon stage, no assistance vehicles are permitted, meaning that drivers and teams have to fend for themselves.
