The next edition of the Dakar is revealed

This Saturday, via a press release, ASO, the organizer of the Dakar, unveiled the 2025 edition, which will take place, for the sixth time, in Saudi Arabia, from January 3 to 17.

The 2025 edition of the Dakar is revealed. This Saturday, via a press release, the organizers of the prestigious event officially gave several important elements concerning the 47th edition of the prestigious rally-raid event. It was David Castera who presented this future edition, in front of 700 guests gathered on the Les Comes off-road circuit, near Barcelona.

For the sixth time in its history, the Dakar will take place in Saudi Arabia, between Friday January 3 and 17. Participants will connect Bisha to Shubaytah. Difficulties will remain high for all participants. The “48 hours” challenge will be renewed. A marathon stage will, as tradition, also be organized again, without forgetting a three-day stay near the Empty Quarter, where this rally will then conclude.

The car and motorcycle categories will be separated for five days

The Dakar teams took care of the construction of the special routes and ensured that the different categories were separated over a period of at least five days, on stage routes. The organization also proposed several looping steps. In Bisha, the prologue will kick off on January 3. Before that, during the two previous days, the participants will already be present on site, in order to carry out various checks, adjustments and other tests, to then be able to take the big start.

During these same two days, it will also be necessary to carry out technical but also administrative checks. Even if Shubaytah has already been visited by the Dakar, during previous editions, this time, the site will host the finish of this event. In total, this edition will take place over fourteen days, with no less than twelve stages planned. Last year, the Dakar was won, in the car category, by the Spaniard Carlos Sainz. In the motorcycle category, it was the American Ricky Brabec who won.
