After the 2008 Dakar rally, the contest was moved to South America. This took place because of the security threats taking place in the different regions of Africa that has also caused the termination of the rally in that same year.
Off-road contests are open to beginners, amateurs, and professionals. However, it is very obvious that because of the different terrain and weather conditions during the contest, only the best ones are expected to finish the race. In the same way, the drivers that drive the best cars are also more likely to endure the different terrain conditions and will surely be the ones to finish the race.
People who are so much passionate and fascinated on off–road contests should also be familiar with the Taupo One Thousand Race in New Zealand. It is also a kind of endurance competition because it is a kind of stand-alone contest. This contest usually last for two days and it is also expected that the toughest and most resistant contestants can win in this game.
