Top American off-road racer, Sara Price, has officially announced her entry into the 2024 edition of the famed Dakar Rally. The grueling 15-day rally will take place in Saudi Arabia beginning on January 5th.
The rally is a long-time dream of Price, who has a stellar career in a number of motorsports genres – from motocross, Trophy Truck and UTV. With her sights set on the toughest rally in the world, Sara posted an impressive string of back-to-back wins this year as she has been preparing for the challenge. Price secured entry after winning the “Road to Dakar” challenge presented by the A.S.O., organizer of the Dakar Rally.
‘’For as long as I can remember, being behind the wheel of an off-road vehicle in the Dakar Rally has been at the top of my bucket list of events I want to compete in," Sara Price said. "This is the pinnacle of motorsports in my book. This year I promised myself I will do everything in my power to race in 2024 and now this dream is a reality. I’m more ready than ever and want to make America proud!’’
Price will race a BFGoodrich-equipped CanAm Maverick X3 in the highly competitive T4 Category. She has teamed up with navigator Jeremy Gray, who navigated with Sara to take the win at the Sonora Rally. Price and Gray will travel to northern Africa to race Rallye du Maroc, an FIA World Rally-Raid scheduled October 12-18 to serve as excellent training for Dakar.
‘’Victory at the 2023 Sonora Rally was just the beginning of our journey to greatness," Jeremy Gray said. "I’m pumped Sara has chosen me to help navigate for the upcoming Rallye du Maroc, and I’m excited to see what we can do at Dakar!’’
For the 46th edition of the Dakar Rally and 5th edition through Saudi Arabia's magnificent deserts, 820 competitors from 68 nationalities will attempt to cover approximately 6000 Miles, over 1 prologue, 12 stages and 14 days of racing. The official dates are January 5-19, 2024.
Sara will be campaigning her journey to the Dakar Rally through her social channels and website where fans can join her journey and support.
