Registrations for the 2023 FIA/FIM World Rally-Raid Championship are open

“For its second year embracing FIA & FIM, the World Rally-Raid Championships will be held over five rounds in 2023, kicking off on 1 January 31 December with the start of the 45th Dakar in Saudi Arabia.”

“The battle will then continue on one of the oldest rallies on the Championship calendar (formerly the World Cup), the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge known for its endless dunes. The change of terrain will allow other driving styles to express themselves in Central America with the Sonora Rally in Mexico at the end of April.”    

“The second part of the season will be played out in South America, more specifically in Argentina, a Dakar terrain that many drivers will know and return on the Desafio Ruta 40 in August. Finally, the W2RC finale will be held on the traditional Rallye du Maroc stage mid-October.”

Establish and upload your packing lists on the Axelerom platform by answering "Yes" to the question "Are you participating in ADDC after DAKAR RALLY ?"
