Originally known as the Paris-Dakar Rally the event rallied a 10,000km route from Paris France to Dakar Senegal.

Held ~30 years from Europe to Africa
Then ~10 years in South America
Now a new era in the Middle East.
Wonder why they move the race they never changed the name from... Dakar

disappointed about the first move now furious about the second move as it seems its only about money and not a really great route

The move to South America was because of security concerns in Africa, I heard. Yup, this new move is about cash and not about good routes. Who wants to run in sand all day?

They should do a little dogleg through yemen. *The drone stage.

This makes more sense than South America. *It’s not ‘all sand’, and it’s logistically way easier for European competitors. *

Good point. *What about the LGBTQ competitors and crews. *Alrite, maybe not such a good idea.*
