DAKAR 2024 – Classic

We woke up early and could finally follow the cars to the start of the Dakar Classic in the desert. The reference to the era of the pioneers, anchored in the Dakar history, led to the creation of the Dakar Classic for the 2021 edition.. Vehicles from the 1980s and 1990s were able to return to the Dakar tracks in a regularity challenge that drew 23 cars and trucks for the inauguration of the concept. From now on, the format will be limited to around 100 crews, all delighted to share their passion for historic vehicles and their restoration. Replicas of René Metge’s and Jacky Ickx’s Porsche 911s, Ari Vatanen’s 205 Peugeot, and Jan De Rooy’s double-cab DAF truck all enjoy a new lease on life on the Dakar Classic.
