Remember when "The Dakar" was actually in Africa? I do. Historical footage of the French military running 'round the desert in Citroen half-tracks in the 1920s. I think this is '86. Jacky Icxx participates in the Porsche 959 effort. Good footage of the bikes & trucks as well..including "faceplants" for bikes and a truck.

Difficulties in securing a satisfactory route for the 2019 edition have led rally organizer ASO to begin talks with African nations about a possible future return to the continent.
Next year's Dakar will take place solely in Peru after Chile withdrew at the last minute and Argentina and Bolivia both declined the chance to return.
Dakar Rally director Etienne Lavigne has revealed his team has started exploring the possibility of moving the rally raid back to the African continent for 2020.
