▫️ Dakar Rally 2021

The 2021 edition is now over

 ⇢ 30 years after his first victory on a bike on the Dakar, Stéphane Peterhansel 🇫🇷 has added a 14th title to his collection and his 8th behind the wheel of a car, becoming the only driver to have won on three continents. At the finish in Jeddah, Kevin Benavides has also written himself into the history books as the first South American winner of the bike category, whilst one of his countrymen, Argentinean Manuel Andújar, was victorious in the quad race. As in 2019, the lightweight vehicle category was dominated by another Latino, Chilean “Chaleco” López. As for the 100% Kamaz coloured podium in the truck race, its first step has been conquered by Russian Dmitry Sotnikov.

⇢ After 12 stages and more than 8,000 kilometres covered in total since 3rd January, 193 vehicles (in comparison to the 286 starters) completed the 43rd edition of the Dakar, the second organised in Saudi Arabia. The rally’s final general standings include 63 bikes, 11 quads, 49 cars, 41 lightweight vehicles and 29 trucks. What’s more, 19 competitors who had to withdraw from the competition prematurely took advantage of the Dakar Experience formula, allowing them to continue the adventure to Jeddah.

⇢ Finally, the Dakar Classic category, which for its first edition welcomed vehicles from the 20th century enrolled in a race for consistency, has been won by Marc Douton behind the wheel of a Sunhill Buggy.
