2017 Route: Paraguay joins the Dakar club
With the addition of Paraguay, the Dakar will visit the 29th country in its history, the 5th on the South American continent. Then the rally will head for its longest stay so far in Bolivia and more specifically the capital city of La Paz. Argentina, which has been a part of every edition since 2009, will be the theatre for the final battle decided in Buenos Aires.
Good luck to all of this year's competitors, and our best wishes to Gerard and to the whole Petronas De Rooy IVECO!
