The premiere in December 1978 from Paris to Dakar started a yearly tradition to test the Endurance and quality of both riders and machines to the absolute Limits.60 participants have lost their lives since the first event, underlining the extreme conditions of competition and racing. Since 2008 the original Organizers switched the Rally  to South America due to terrorist threats against the main sponsors company.
