The rally is an off-road endurance event. The terrain that the competitors traverse is much tougher than that used in conventional rallying, and the vehicles used are typically true off-road vehicles and motorcycles, rather than modified on-road vehicles.

The 45th Dakar Rally will run from December 31-January 15, 2023, finishing up on the kingdom’s eastern sea border.

Launched in 1979 between Paris and the Senegalese capital Dakar, the celebrated endurance challenge moved to Saudi Arabia for the first time in 2020 after a decade in South America.

As host of other sports besides the Dakar,  the Saudis have dismissed accusations of “sportswashing” voiced by human rights groups. The kingdom is also staging high-profile football, cycling, Formula E, Formula One, golf and boxing events.
