The 2013 Dakar returns to the scene of last year’s event. The white sand dunes around Fiambalá are a real highlight for spectators. For the drivers, however, they can quickly become a nightmare. Engines can overheat on this ruthless terrain, cars can easily become stuck in the sand, or competitors can stray confused into the dune landscape. One thing is certain: the route around Fiambalá is always good for some action.
