Dakar Rally 2022 - Time, TV Channel and Race Schedule

The 44th edition of the Dakar Rally organized by Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO). The event takes place 1–14 January 2022. There are nearly 1,000 competitors entered in the 2022 competition, including American Austin Jones returning after a runner-up finish in SSV last year.

The 2022 occasion will have an unexpected course in comparison to the past two years. It started with Saturday's passing stage that began in Jeddah, and it will end in the city where it began.

Dakar Rally 2022 TV Channel

The Dakar Rally 2022 US Fan can watch the 2022 Dakar Rally on the Peacock TV streaming service. At the time of writing, however, it isn't clear if Peacock will be showing every stage of the race, or a daily highlights reel.

UK can tune into the 2022 Dakar Rally on real time feature Discovery+, which you can prefer for £6.99 each month or £59.99 each year. Even better, there's a 7-day FREE preliminary for new clients.

Dakar Rally 2022 Route

The organizers listened to the complaints and on 11 May 2021 revealed a new route which is characterized by a push into the sandy Empty Quarter. Same as last year, the route includes 1 Prologue stage, 12 stages including 2 loop stages and 1 marathon stage.

The route will consist of around 4,000 km (2,500 mi) of special stages and 2,500 km (1,600 mi) - 3,000 km (1,900 mi) of liaisons. The exact route was revealed in late November 2021.[7] The route did not feature the Empty Quarter this year. Initially, due to very difficult terrain, the competitors were planned to be airlifted from stage 8 finish to Riyadh.
