Later this madness attracted many followers.
The real French were fascinated by traveling. Normally, they just gave him the Jules Verne. And all they organized and less usual first auto races. Founder of the brand that bears his name, Andre Citroen initiated between October 28, 1924 and June 26, 1925 a crossing of Africa. He thought a “Trans-Sahara”, but this project has been compromised due to high costs. Five decades later appeared rally-raid Dakar. Another beautiful madness that has already reached unimaginable.

Rally because he used automobile adapted to this kind of racing. Raid because it is traveling across large territories. Madness? because distances are very large, they are absolutely unknown routes … know where you go, but do not know where it leads.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section bg_image=”http://baja500.ro/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/maxresdefault.jpg” attachment=”fixed” bg_repeat=”no-repeat” bg_stretch=”true” enable_3d=”true” video_color_mask=”#000000″ min_height=”0″ full_height=”true” padding_top=”20″ padding_bottom=”20″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″ first_page=”false” last_page=”false”][vc_column][mk_fancy_title color=”#ffffff” size=”22″ font_weight=”bold” letter_spacing=”2″ margin_bottom=”0″ font_family=”none” align=”center”]Thierry Sabine[/mk_fancy_title][mk_divider style=”thin_solid” divider_width=”custom_width” custom_width=”30″ thickness=”3″ margin_top=”24″ margin_bottom=”120″][vc_column_text]The idea I came all of a Frenchman Thierry Sabine. Anidjan race participant – Nice, he was lost in the desert on a motorcycle. Escaped safely, it was thought that maybe organize a rally to cross such arid areas which pose serious problems both people and vehicles.

In 1978 appeared rally-raid Dakar.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section bg_image=”http://baja500.ro/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/dakar.jpg” attachment=”fixed” bg_repeat=”no-repeat” bg_stretch=”true” enable_3d=”true” video_color_mask=”#000000″ min_height=”0″ full_height=”true” padding_top=”20″ padding_bottom=”20″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″ first_page=”false” last_page=”false”][vc_column][mk_fancy_title color=”#ffffff” size=”22″ font_weight=”bold” letter_spacing=”2″ margin_bottom=”0″ font_family=”none” align=”center”]Dakar[/mk_fancy_title][mk_divider style=”thin_solid” divider_width=”custom_width” custom_width=”30″ thickness=”3″ margin_top=”24″ margin_bottom=”120″][vc_column_text]Numele cursei, care se păstrează si astazi deși ea se desfășoară în America de Sud, vine de la orasul senegalez unde a avut loc prima sosire.
Traseul cursei s-a schimbat de la an la an. Fie pentru a oferi competitorilor alte încercări, fie pentru ca zonele traversate cu un an înainte deveniseră periculoase. În 1992, caravana a plecat din Paris si a ajuns tocmai în orasul sud-african Cape Town. Cativa ani mai târziu, sosirea a fost în Cairo. Pentru ca din 2009 startul si finisul sa fie în Buenos Aires.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section bg_image=”http://baja500.ro/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/dakar-2017-reduced-to-12-stages-includes-paraguay_2.jpg” attachment=”fixed” bg_repeat=”no-repeat” bg_stretch=”true” enable_3d=”true” video_color_mask=”#000000″ video_opacity=”0.4″ min_height=”0″ full_height=”true” padding_top=”20″ padding_bottom=”20″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″ first_page=”false” last_page=”false”][vc_column][mk_fancy_title color=”#ffffff” size=”22″ font_weight=”bold” letter_spacing=”2″ margin_bottom=”0″ font_family=”none” align=”center”]In ziua de astazi[/mk_fancy_title][mk_divider style=”thin_solid” divider_width=”custom_width” custom_width=”30″ thickness=”3″ margin_top=”24″ margin_bottom=”120″][vc_column_text]The race became famous by the fact that participants cross the arid, high temperatures, which require both humans and material competition. In addition, the wind, the desert routes disappear from time to time, making it difficult orientation.
There are now Profile championships in Europe, already established international flights, which gather dozens of crews at home.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/mk_page_section]
