The X-raid Team is going to make the trip to South America for the Desafio Litoral – a new event on the Dakar Series calendar, held from 23rd to 28th July – with three cars.

In May, the ASO announced an additional event to be added to the Dakar Series calendar: the ‘Desafio Litoral’. The newly created rally will be started on 23rd July in Igazua, Argentina, that it famous for its waterfalls regarded as one of the seven natural wonders of the world. From there, the six stages of the event will take the competitors across Argentina to Resistencia where the drivers will cross the finish podium on 28th July. The special stages supposed to be held in Paraguay had to be cancelled due to the political instability in the country.
