STAGE 2 TRACKING
STAGE 2: PISCO > PISCO
Connection 85km | Special Stage 242km | Total 337km
Like every year, more than 25% of the competitors will discover the Dakar for the first time. With this stage, they will be immediately immersed in a sandy environment and cross gentler dunes. Their initial endeavours will allow them to test and adjust their driving techniques, but also to sample the delights of shovelling sand for some, while several engines will overheat for the first time. During this stage where there is only sand, the minor scares at the beginning of the special stage will not stop the majority of drivers and navigators from savouring a constant treat for the eyes. In terms of aesthetics, the scenery borders on perfection.
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
