Dakar Rally back in South America again

7:33 am on 24 March 2010

Argentina and Chile will for the third consecutive year host the Dakar Rally.

The rally will take place next January with a start and finish in Buenos Aires.

After staging the event 29 times in Africa between 1979 and 2007, the rally switched continents in 2008 because of security reasons.

The 2009 and 2010 editions of the rally have both also been staged in Argentina and Chile.
