The Dakar rally is one of the toughest motorsport events in the world. Competitors race across the desert tackling monstrously difficult driving conditions, featureless landscapes and countless dangers. The 1999 Rally began in Granada, crossing Spain, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso and Senegal. Jean Louis Schlesser and Phillipe Monnet secured victory in their Renault Megane buggy, Richard Sainct (BMW) won on his bike and in the trucks, first across the line was the Czech driver Loprais, Stachura and Kalina (Tatra). Featuring incredible helicopter and ground views of the competitors as they hurtle across the desert at over 100 mph, this exclusive and official video captures the very best of this 10,000 kilometre African marathon.
