00-DAKAR Map (1)
The road to dakar has been an intense project. Lots and lots of hours have been dedicated to the effort by some who are on the team and by others who just wanted to lend their expertise to such a challenging adventure. Together with Jim Beam, Hummer H3 and Toyo Tires, Team Dakar USA will help put American Off-Road racing on the global map. Betting on off-road races, a thrilling niche in the gambling world, offers adrenaline-fueled excitement for enthusiasts. From desert rallies to mud-splattered circuits, these events captivate audiences worldwide. With platforms like 라카지노 expanding their offerings, fans can wager on their favorite drivers and teams, adding an extra layer of intensity to the off-road experience.
When Team Dakar USA wanted to introduce the Hummer H3 to the media the logical choice was the Imperial Sand Dunes in Southern California
With just two days to go before the start of the world’s most grueling long-distance event, the Lisbon-Dakar Rally, Robby Gordon and his team of ace race mechanics proudly wheeled their sparkling, new Dakar Hummer H3 through one of the event’s most difficult sections….tech inspection. The grueling ordeal takes most competitors at least ten hours to complete and is often referred to as one of the rally’s toughest stages.

01-DAY 1 (23)
12/31/2005/Lisbon-Portimao: The tracks of Alentejo – Fine-tuning the preparation of the machine and testing its capacities in racing conditions are the usual exercises in Europe. For the first time, competitors must also try out their hand at navigation. Tracks, and fast ones at that, are ideal for riding and driving, but there will be as many traps as there are changes in direction. There will be a real overall classification on New Year’s Eve.
02-DAY 2 (12)
1/1/2006/Portimao-Malaga: The ridges of Algarve – A special of over 100 kms in Europe: another first. On this fast and mountainous track, the thrill of riding and drivng and the beauty of the site sometimes remind us of the famous Pikes Peak rise in Colorado. After a special fought out against a backdrop of true wonder, Spain will just be a 400-km liaison through to the landing stage in Malaga. The crossing lasts seven hours.
03-DAY 3 (3)
1/2/2006/Nador-Er Rachidia: Something new to the East He who looks will find. The fact that the title of the stage has appeared three times in the history of the rally will not be of much help, since the course of the special is totally new. Crossing the wadis, Morocco’s classic traps, will be on the menu, and the first major errors of navigation are to be anticipated. Those used to old-version GPS technology could pay the price for a tricky period of adaptation.
04-DAY 4 (4)
1/3/2006/Er Rachidia-Ouarzazate: Gateway to the desert This could be considered as a Dakar classic, but there is something unknown here too. It is perhaps the rally’s most varied special. With the first dunes, it will doubtless be the time to get out the shovels and sand mats, before taking on the shotts, stretches of sandy or stony wadis… It’s a time for co-drivers to bury their head in the road-book, not in the sand.
05-DAY 5 (4)
1/4/2006/Ouarzazate-Tan Tan: The wadi road Communication between driver and co-driver will have to be fine-tuned to a maximum on account alternate fast stretches and navigational traps. In comparison to the 2005 edition, competitors will have almost tripled their mileage in specials before leaving Morocco. The timing of the 1,250 kms already covered should produce a coherent classification.
06-DAY 6 (4)
1/5/2006/Tan Tan-Zouérat: Southbound – The hours of sleep stored up from previous stages will be an asset when tackling this long road. The long liaison to the start of the special will take place at night, in conditions which require maximum vigilance. The first part of the sector counting towards classification will be fought out over a wide, fast track, before taking on a much sandier stretch halfway through the special.
07-DAY 7 (3)
1/6/2006/Zouerat-Atar: A tricky pass Navigational finesse will be rewarded during the major difficulty of this first week which will be contested off-track. Absolutely off-track. Indications will be sparse on the road-book, and those who miss the HWPs will have all their work cut out to find the right passes. After the dunes, competitors will be driving along stony plateaux and slaloming in camel grass.
08-DAY 8 (5)
1/7/2006/Atar-Nouakchott: “Hole shot” On the first part of the special, the windy route crosses canyons and wadis. Competitors will feel themselves shot like a pinball against the massifs. After the series of zigzags, a very fast stretch will temp the most itchy to push the speedo. But over-confidence could lead to bad surprises.
09-DAY 9 (0)
1/8/2006/A DAY OF REST: Reaching rest day is already half a victory for many competitors, with the intense programme of eight stages now behind them. In the Mauritanian capital, located at a geographical and cultural crossroads between nomadic and sedentary life, moments of respite are short but sweet.
10-DAY 10 (3)
1/9/2006/Nouakchott-Kiffa: The well track For the rally’s longest special, stretches twenty kilometres in length follow on from beginning and the end of the route. Betwen stretches, driving will be over a fast, rocky the track crosses large dunes which will to stay on large, black-soil plateaux.
11-DAY 11 (3)
1/10/2006/Kiffa-Kayes: Brushland entrance to Mali. The vegetation thickens. Among baobabs, the narrow, furrowed dirt track winds its way through the savanah. This fast special favours driving, riding and sliding over the first laterite sections. Despite the tricky shotts which line the course, this will be a transition day before the challenges of Black Africa.
12-DAY 12 (3)
1/11/2006/Kayes-Bamako: Although care has been taken for the course to avoid the wildlife reserve of Badinko and the biosphere reserve of the Baoulé loop, the caravan progresses through a sumptuous setting, with a continuous sequence of forests and savanahs. As the tracks are narrow, extreme care is recommended in the eventuality of any navigational error requiring a u-turn.
13-DAY13 (3)
1/12/2006/Bamako-Labe: Mali is left in liaison. The course of this first Guinean special takes drivers and riders into highly varied configurations. Trial zones replace fast laterite tracks, and bikers will have to get their feet wet when passing through fords. From a vegetation point of view, you won’t quite need a machete knife! At the finish, as is required for a marathon stage, there will be no assistance vehicles.
14-DAY 14 (3)
1/13/2006/Labe-Tambacounda: The Dakar can have mountain stages. Even if there is no need for oxygen masks, the rally will reach its high point on this special, verging on 1,000m in some passes. As with the previous day, the tracks will be narrow, and dust will make overtaking very difficult.
15- DAY 15 (3)
1/14/2006/Tambacounda-Dakar: Along the Senegalese tracks, co-drivers will once again be on call. The special is longer than last year’s and numerous changes in direction might lead those who are not focused up the wrong road. In other words, there are still minutes up for grabs or which can be lost. After an attractive liaison stretch, entry into Dakar will take in a tranquil tour of Senegalese villages.
16-DAY 16 (3)
1/15/2006/Dakar-Dakar: Around Lac Rose: over the years, the exercise has become a motor sport classic. Some are still tempted to go after a handful of seconds to hoist themselves up one or two places in the overall classification. Others quietly take advantage of a moment which they have imagined for a long time before actually experiencing it. For everyone, the thrill is immense.
