A TASTE OF DAKAR — The Yokohama Sonora Rally is modeled after the granddaddy of rally events, Dakar:
If you’ve ever wondered what Dakar is like, Sonora Rally is designed to give you a taste, albeit a gnarly taste. We’ve pulled out all the stops, and are creating stages that will challenge even the most experienced off-road racers.
That doesn’t mean just cool, wild, and crazy terrain. It also means challenging navigation. In line with true cross-country rally, no GPS tracks will be provided or allowed, no maps are provided or allowed, and there is no pre-running. It’s you, your vehicle, the roadbook, your navigation, and the desert unknown.
To win in this rally it will take savvy navigation, precise driving, serious guts, and care for your machine, . . . for four days straight. With the bikes, that all has to be packaged in one person, an ironman rider !
