Watch live at! 

Dakars rally is a celebration of all things Dakar.

It is a race to showcase the country’s culture, heritage and heritage, with the aim of showcasing the nation’s best drivers and drivers of every generation. 

For a start, there is no TV broadcast this year. 

You can tune in on YouTube or watch the race on Facebook, where the livestream is available for anyone who wants to tune in. 

In this edition of the DAKAR Rally Sport, we’re here to show you the best cars and drivers from across the country and the world. 


Camaro Rally Sport The 2017 Camaro R1  is a classic, with a supercar and a superlative performance.

Its one of the most popular rally cars of all time. 

But it has also been criticised for being too big for the tracks and not suitable for rally driving. 

It is a little bit like the F1 world championship in the sense that it’s too small for a rally but too big to do a rally. 

The car was originally meant to be used for the British Rally Championship, but the format changed due to poor results, and the British series has moved to the US. 

Camaro’s R1 has an extremely potent engine, capable of hitting 62mph in 4.9 seconds, with 1,966bhp and 1,900lb ft of torque. 

Its a very good combination of performance and efficiency, and it is one of our favourites for the Dakar Rally. 


Ferrari F430 Ferrari is one that will always have a cult following, even though the F430 has had some disappointing results in recent years. 

While it has made a return to rallying in recent times, it has been mostly on the back of a superfast production car that can reach 100mph in under 2 seconds. 

That is a very quick lap time.

The Ferrari F500 is a completely different beast, boasting a 0-62mph time of 4.8 seconds, and a top speed of 188mph. 

However, the F500 can be slow, as the F5 can go from 0-100mph in 3.9. 

 The F430 is the one we will be talking about. 

Fittingly enough, it is the first car in the race that is based on a Ferrara F430. 


Porsche 918 Spyder The 918 is the fastest street-legal car in history. 

This means that it is capable of going from 0 to 100mph (depending on how fast you can drive the car) in less than 6 seconds.

Its also capable of accelerating from 0 – 60mph in 2.8. 

We are looking forward to seeing how the Porsche 919 compares to the Ferraris. 


Porsche 911 GT3 RS The 911 GT is arguably the most iconic 911 in the world, and one of only two GTs to have won the Le Mans 24 Hours. 

Porsche won the race in 2016, but its not the only car that the 911 GT has won. 

Other great cars in the history of the race include the Ferrari F355 and Ferrari 458 Italia. 


Ferrari 458Italia The Ferrari 458 has a track record of winning many races, but one of its biggest winners has been the 458 Italo S, a road-going racing car built to the specification of the famous Porsche. 

As such, we are expecting the 458 to deliver a great performance. 


Lamborghini Murcielago The Lamborghinis Murciels were developed by Lamborghin’s design studio, and have become synonymous with high-performance sports cars. 

They are also a very popular rally car. 

When they were first introduced in the 1970s, the Murciélago was seen as a fast street car, but that has changed. 

At the 2017 Dakar rally we expect to see it make its debut in the #MurcielagosCars race, which is a rally event in the heart of the city of Dakar, Senegal. 


Audi RS3 Audi’s RS3 has had a stellar run in the Dakars rally.

The RS3 is one for the record books. 

Although its a little slower than a GT3, it can go up to 150mph in 6.5 seconds, making it one of Audi’s best rally cars. 


Porsche Cayenne Turbo The Porsche Cayanne Turbo has been a big hit
