Baja Racing News.com EXCLUSIVE!

Argentina has been confirmed as the host of the 2010 Dakar Rally, following the event’s success earlier this year. Teams begin to travel and practice at this venue just after traditional thanksgiving celebrations are over.

Next year’s 32nd running of the event will start and finish in Buenos Aires on January 1 and 17, and will hold stages throughout Argentina and Chile.

Dakar Rally director Etienne Lavigne said: “Following a really successful 2009 Dakar Rally, hosted jointly by Argentina and Chile, we are pleased to announce that the 2010 Dakar Rally will once again be returning to South America.”

Leonardo Boto of the Argentine tourist authority added: “This is a major success for Argentina; it will be a boost for our tourism industry and for our international prestige.

“It will be a fantastic opportunity for the rest of the world to see the real Argentina, we have so much to offer visitors to our country. We will do everything possible to make the 2010 rally a success.”
