The series has gained a cult following. After two seasons of a revamped format that brings FIM riders and FIA drivers and crews together in the same races, the World Rally-Raid Championships continue to spice up the sport year-round with twists and turns, duels and vendettas. The series encourages competitors and constructors to perform at a high level and push the envelope at all times, while spectators and TV viewers get familiar with the various rounds that have carved out a niche on the calendar. On the road from AlUla to Yanbu, the Dakar will get the ball rolling for the third act of the W2RC, whose 2024 edition will also come to a close in the Rallye du Maroc and will feature a European round, the BP Ultimate Rally-Raid in Portugal.


“For over 3 decades, competitors across the globe have been dreaming about the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, as we’ve been racing in the same spectacular dunes of the Empty Quarter for as long as we can remember. Being part of W2RC since its inception, we continue to make people dream with the commitment to nurture and support the championship’s growth and success.”

H.E. Khalid Ben Sulayem, President of the Emirates Motorsports Organization (EMSO)


"The arrival of the W2RC in South America was a great success that both competitors and fans really enjoyed. It was definitely a great comeback for the Desafío Ruta 40 and we are very excited to be part of the third season of the World Rally-Raid Championship. We look forward to seeing you in Argentina, June 2-8, 2024, to enjoy another edition of this unique event."

David Eli, Desafío Ruta 40 - General coordinator


“It is an honor to host the BP Ultimate Rally Raid. We have unique conditions for practicing this sport and guarantee the excellent organization of ACP on a world organization. Welcome To Portugal!”

Carlos Barbosa - President Automovel Club de Portugal


"The Rallye du Maroc is delighted to host the finale of the W2RC again. We will work together with the local authorities and federations to overhaul the route and start from one of the major cities in the country, which will burnish the credentials of the race even further."

David Castera – directeur du Rallye du Maroc
