The 2018 Dakar Rally said goodbye to the challenging Peruvian routes after going through its territory for six stages, in which thousands of fans of motorsports vibrated with the roar of the engines in the most demanding race in the world. More than 50 thousand people attended the Marca Perú tent in the Dakar Village during the three days it lasted. The visitors, Peruvians and foreigners, could learn more about the race and why it is considered the toughest in the world. At the start podium, which was on the outside of Pentagonito, there were around 30 thousand people.
Otherwise, at the food fairs, more than 60,000 people were received in Pisco and Puno, where there were 40 food stands of the regions where the Dakar took place, as well as regional dances from the south of the country.
It must be noted that the organization of the 2018 Dakar Rally created a multisectoral commission led by the Ministry of Foreign Commerce and Tourism (MINCETUR) and where the ministries of Culture, Environment, Education, Interior and Defense participated in order to draw a path that protects the exclusion zones for the cultural and ecological heritage of Peru to be respected.
Also, this commission carried out an awareness campaign in which the public was asked to respect the spectator zones, to collect the waste and throw it away, and to respect the signage around the route. Safety was guaranteed thanks to the people that attended this event.
