Rallye News
Australasian Safari recognised as one of the world's key rally events with new Dakar agreement


Posted: Saturday, 28th April, 2012 : 7:23 AM - - 4,566 Reads


One amateur motorbike competitor in this year's Australasian Safari will live the dream with a free entry into Dakar, the world's toughest motorsport event, thanks to an agreement between Australasian Safari and Dakar 2013.

The Australasian Safari has been selected as one of only four events for the world's most extreme and legendary offroad motorsport races.

The Dakar Rally organisers, and the Australasian Safari have just signed an agreement that will see the winner of the Moto category of the Safari receive free entry into Dakar 2013. This will be known as the Dakar Challenge.

Australasian Safari event director Justin Hunt said the agreement was an exciting step forward for Safari in gaining further international exposure.

"We've known for some years now that the Australasian Safari is our region's toughest offroad motorsport event, but this agreement now acknowledges our status on the international stage.

"The agreement gives the Safari international recognition and further credibility as a major player on the world scene.

"For several years we have had strong international competitors come to Australia to compete as a serious rehearsal for Dakar and this agreement will hopefully encourage further international interest in our event," Justin said.

Two car crews will be chosen from the Toyota 1000 Race Desert in Botswana and the Pharaohs Rally (Egypt), whilst two motorbike riders will be heading to South America from the Taklimakan Rally in China and the Australasian Safari in Western Australia.

A condition of entry into the Dakar Challenge is that entrants must never have participated in the Dakar, nor have finished in the top ten of an FIM all terrain rally.

The Australasian Safari, from 21 to 29 September 2012, is an eight-day endurance race that sees competitors travel mainly off-road tracks through the outback of Western Australia. The event is known as one of the toughest and most challenging motorsport events in the world. This year's course will be approximately 3500km through the mid west of Western Australia.

Dakar 2013 is a massive 8000km race from Lima, Peru through Argentina and finishing in Santiago, Chile from 5 to 20 January 2013.
