Default Dakar Question

Do most of these Dakar competitors only do this one event, or do they compete in smaller, shorter rallyraids that we rarely or never hear about in the U.S.. I follow motorsports pretty closely, but I never hear the drivers names any other time during the year.

I believe they do lesser known raids mostly in Europe and Africa. They test for most of the year and the Dakar is like the Pinnacle.

There actually is a rally raid championship, in which many of these guys compete.

One of the races in 2002 was here in the north of chile, in the atacama desert . The only relatively famous driver that I remember came here, was servia with his buggy.

Carlo de Gavardo was very important to bring the rally raid to chile, he's a chilean motorcycle racer. He's currently 6th I think in the dakar (he's currently racing with a semi-recovered injury he got here in chile ).
