Rali Dakar 2019

January 6-17, 2019 -- A celebrar o seu 10º aniversário na América do Sul, o Rali Dakar deste
ano tem lugar inteiramente no Peru, com pelo menos 70 por cento das
estapas em areia e dunas.

Starting and finishing in Lima, the rally will see riders competing in 10 stages for a total distance of around 5,600km, including 3,000km of special stages. At least 70 percent of the terrain to be tackled will be sand and dunes. The race will also feature two marathon stages, where competitors service their own vehicles without technical assistance from rally crews.

The 2019 edition of the Dakar is being run solely in Peru after both Chile and Argentina withdrew due to austerity measures, while Bolivia failed to agree on a route with rally organisers, according to the AFP news agency.

The Dakar was moved from Africa in 2009 because of security issues that saw the 2008 rally cancelled.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
