Dakar 1983

A little throwback to the past!

3 photos from January 1, 1983, Place de la Concorde.

As it is in January, and that it is Paris-Dakar month, I went through my archives.

Those were the days when he carried his name well...

This year, it's the Jacky Ickx / Claude Brasseur crew winning it in car category, and Hubert Auriol in motorcycle category.

12,000 kms, no rest day, 8 countries crossed.
