The Dakar Rally is no doubt one of the toughest forms of motorsports, if not 'the' toughest. For enthusiasts and professional racers, finishing the Dakar is an achievement that will be cherished for long.
Speaking of competing in the Dakar Rally, registrations are now open for the 2018 season and will remain open for 15 days.
For the 2018 season, the Dakar Rally is expecting around 500 competitors, across categories (Bike, Quad, Car, and Truck) from 60 different countries globally.
Racers will race against the clock for 15 days, testing their endurance skills, navigation skills, themselves, and their machines across 10,000km in South America. They will encounter high altitude, sand, mud, ruts, gravel, and almost every imaginable obstacle, including mother nature.
The entry fee for a rally will set you back by Rs 1.2 lakh, which excludes your ride, transportation for you and your vehicle, food, stay, fuel, etc.
The 2018 Dakar Rally will take place at the beginning of the year, and from India, CS Santosh (Hero Motorsport), Aravind KP (TVS Sherco), and Abdul Wahid Tanveer (TVS Sherco) will participate.
Bangalore rider CS Santosh was the first Indian to compete in the Dakar Rally from India and is the only Indian to complete the race. CS Santosh finished two rallies successfully out of three.
So what's in store for 2018 Dakar Rally? Time will reveal, and we wish the three Indian participants, along with all the other entrants all the very best.
