The once legendary Dakar Rally has left one spiritual heir in Africa. The Budapest-Bamako keeps the flame of trans-Saharan driving adventures alive. The start is not Paris, the finish is not Dakar, the costs are not the same, but the experience and the spirit of adventure has not changed.
The Budapest-Bamako is a minimal assistance adventure and navigational race from Europe to Africa. The B2B is not an easy Sunday drive or picnic in the park. We have no rescue helicopters, tow trucks, translators, lawyers, tour guides or psychotherapists. You must rely on your own luck, resources and skills.<!> One thing is certain on the Budapet-Bamako: uncertainty.
You never know what’s going to happen next. That’s adventure. The B2B is a huge community event across two continents over two weeks.
