PERU DROPPED FROM DAKAR 2016 ROUTE
Peru has been pulled from the proposed stages of next year’s Dakar Rally
Due to forecasts concerning the El Nino weather phenomenon, which is expected to be extremely violent this year, the Peruvian government has decided to make this issue a national priority by ensuring that all state services are able to mobilise if necessary to help the population that could be affected.
Following this news organisers of the Dakar Rally have been forced to avoid the region next January.
While hoping that the people of Peru will not have to face these predicted disasters, the entire Dakar organising team is already hard at work to create an alternative route with optimal sporting and safety conditions both in Argentina and Bolivia.
The final route of the 2016 Dakar will be announced in the second half of September.
