The Dakar Rally is the world’s toughest off-road endurance race, an annual event where racers push themselves to the limit to compete in what has been said to be the most dangerous race, with great challenges in extreme conditions. And Christophe Barriere-Varju has been one of those die-hard competitors, having been in the Dakar Rally four times, both in Africa and in South America. Christophe speaks with Jim Martin about being in this incredible international race, and tells us about the award winning film “Dreamracer”, the true story about Christophe and his motorbike in the Dakar Rally.
