Dakar Rally is an international motorsports event that is held annually. The event is being held since 1979. It involves racing through rough terrain for more than 500km per day. Both amateur and professional drivers participate in this event. Earlier the event was mostly held in Paris, France or Dakar in Senegal. Nowadays, the event is mostly held in South America due to terror threats. The event was recently flagged off in Jeddah but women’s rights activists are calling for a boycott.
