Another Amazing Dakar Rally Concludes.
The 43rd edition of the Dakar Rally has officially come to an end, covering 7,646 kilometres over 12 stages to reach Jeddah on 15th January. Polaris teams – Xtreme+ Team, Polaris France CST Team, and the Polaris RZR Factory Racing Team – all successfully completed the world’s toughest rally with the new RZR Pro XP machine.
Running for the second year in Saudi Arabia, home to vast expanses of desert and a labyrinth of complicated tracks, every kilometre of the special stages was brand-new whilst the fastest sectors that relied on raw power were trimmed, opening up the Dakar to all-new possibilities.
Polaris Xtreme+ Team;
The Polaris Xtreme+ team battled across the huge desert dunes and technical tracks full of stones, sand and rocks, with five out of six teams making it to the end of the world’s toughest rally.
In his first-ever Dakar Rally experience, Liam Griffin, alongside co-pilot Stephanie Duplé (#432), fought to the end to claim the finishers medal and also concluded the rally as the top-placed Xtreme+ crew in the rankings.
