Dakar: Looking back on the first week of action (VIDEO)


Today marks the beginning of the second and final week of racing in the 2015 Dakar Rally.

Relatively fresh after a rest day on Saturday, the motorcycle and quad categories are driving from Iquique into Bolivia, while the car class is heading back into the Chilean city ahead of Monday’s rest day for themselves and the trucks.

Speaking of the trucks, they’re carrying out a third different race today as they also return to Iquique from their own separate marathon stage bivouac in the desert.

We’ll keep an eye on the start of Week 2 here at MotorSportsTalk. But in the meantime, check out the clip above to look back on the first week of action in South America.
