QUADS NO LONGER ALLOWED IN DAKAR RALLY

We started hearing rumors back at the final world rally round in Morocco last Fall and now they are official. After more than 30 years as part of the family, the #Dakar2025 will not feature a quad race. According to a statements on the organizers Facebook page “We would like to thank and congratulate all the competitors who have been part of this adventure. The Dakar will now focus on the wildly popular motorbike category. We will work hard to fine-tune the selection procedure and boost the safety of the riders.” And of course the SXS category will grow just as it has in Baja and U.S. desert racing.
