Dakar Rally introduces Classic category for pre‑2000 vehicles

From 2021, the Dakar Rally’s organising body, the Amaury Sport Organisation, will be introducing a ‘Classic’ category to the gruelling two-week race, paying tribute to the pioneers of rally raid.

Announced this month, the Dakar Classic will welcome vintage cars and trucks that would have competed in the Paris-Dakar, as it was then known, or similar events during the 1980s and 1990s, as well as period-accurate replicas.
