Desafío Inca: the school of dunes


Registration is now open for edition three of the Desafío Inca on September 11-13, a tactical meeting just a few months prior to the Dakar…

 The return of the Dakar to Peru promises a dense and demanding programme in the opening days of the rally in 2016… with a substantial ration of sand. Those who competed on the Peruvian stages in the 2012 and 2013 will confirm: the dunes are tall, they go on forever and the sand is soft!  Everything comes together for the climbing experts, who will be the most at home in these sectors. With this in mind, the Desafío Inca stages appear to be an opportune occasion to test both the vehicle and one’s sensations in proper race conditions, not too long before the Dakar challenge. Over three days of racing, the Inca Desert will be explored via three two-lap loop stages.

While the Desafío Inca is presented as a major test ahead of the Dakar, training sessions and navigation courses will be provided. It is also the final round of the Dakar Series, where the title will be decided, rewarding the winner of the accumulated general classification with results obtained on the Desafío Ruta 40 and Desafío Guaraní. The Dakar Challenge, for the youngest competitors (in any case the least experienced in the top echelon of rally-raid) will also be up for grabs. The eventual winner will win a free entry for the 2016 Dakar, which is a particularly coveted prize.
