The circuit from the future megacity of Neom is a real gem. Taking competitors to the border with Jordan, the rally offers a series of canyons and mountains to explore on a carpet of sand. During this special stage, the Dakar will reach its highest point, at an altitude of 1,400 metres.

Competitors are already talking about the stunning scenery. This side of Saudi has things like the Hijaz railway made famous through Lawrence of Arabia stories. The tracks are still partially there. Once ruled by the Ottomans the area is steeped in history.

The only petrol that i have managed to get is 91 so the Raptor engine is not enjoying it. I’ll have to try to find some 95 somewhere. We filled up the support truck with diesel the other day. 746 litres for $90.00. No, thats not an error. 😳
