Those who want to compete in the 5 stages and the more than 1.700 kilometers of competitive special will be able to do so to qualify for the Latin American FIM and the Atacama International Rally in Cross Country Rally mode. This modality will be the only one for rookie riders who want to qualify to be able to register and participate in the Dakar 2023.
As a whole, the Atacama Rally in any of its modalities will be developed in a loup system, establishing a unique Bivouac where the competitors of the different categories will share their incredible sporting experiences and, above all, the friendship that unites the Cross Country Rally family.
