Dakar 2022 Stages

🚩Jeddah – 🏁 Ha’il (SS-19km)

A taster of what to come as we begin to sort the competitors and where the top 15 from each category can choose, in reverse order, their starting position for the next day!

Stage 1
🚩Ha’il – 🏁 Ha’il (SS-334km)

The co-pilots will come to the fore with some immediate navigation difficulties as we explore the sandy, mountain landscapes of the north

Stage 2
🚩Ha’il – 🏁 Al Artawiyah (SS-339km)

The start of a marathon stage and the first dunes, what could be better?

Stage 3
🚩Al Artawiyah – 🏁 Al Qaisumah (SS-368km)

Despite it being a more flowing stage, the drivers will have to know how to manage their tire allowance as they navigate a lot of criss-crossing tracks.

Stage 4
🚩Al Qaisumah – 🏁 Riyadh (SS-465km)

The Dakar heads south towards the capital in a stage that encompasses both tracks and dunes as well as a rocky section near the finish.

Stage 5
🚩Riyadh – 🏁 Riyadh (SS-348km)

The competitors will head out east of Riyadh to rocky sections as well as a tough long dune part. It has everything to create some serious time differences.

Stage 6
🚩Riyadh – 🏁 Riyadh (SS- 421km)

To finish off the first week of the rally, the second loop of the capital sees the Dakar move out west into dunes that could help those who master them to make the difference on the fast piste in the final.

After a long six stages, it’s time for a rest day 😴
