Races/Rallies in South America

I'm going to be traveling throughout South America for 6 months and was wondering what races or rallies I could participate in.
Thanks

The Dakar is of course out of reach for a traveler, but in Peru there are varios other races.... it all depends on what you are riding.

There will be a DAKAR SERIES, the 'Desafio Inca' Sept 7-14. Then all thru the year there is the Cross Country events including the two 'INKAS OFFROAD' events.

Then if you are into chasing bigger events, there is the Dakar itself and the 'Caminos del Inca' (10-day international car rallye)... usually in October.

I do moto tours for many of these.

Cheers! Toby

Inka Offroad 2014 just was presented to the public and competitors 2 days ago. I was at the meeting. By mid Feb it should be online. I forget the 5 events..

I have regular adventure tours, but also follow the Dakar and the 'Desafio Inca' Dakar Series this year. Can't talk business here but write me at aroundtheblock07@gmail.com

Drop by! I'm in Huanuco, right on the central Andean route.

Cheers! Toby
