Arrow Paris ti Dakar


Category Rally raid..
Quote:
The race originated in December 78, a year after Thierry Sabine got lost in the Ténéré desert whilst competing in the Abidjan-Nice rally and decided that the desert would be a good location for a regular rally..182 vehicles took the start of the inaugural rally in Paris, with 74 surviving the 10,000 kilometres (6,200 mi) trip to the Senegalese capital of Dakar. Cyril Neveu holds the distinction of being the event's first winner, riding a Yamaha motorcycle. The event rapidly grew in popularity, with 216 vehicles taking the start..There are many varieties of sandpaper, with variations in the paper or backing, the material used for the grit, grit size, and the bond..

73 - Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa headquartered in Dakar is the capital and largest city of Senegal..It is located on the Cap-Vert Peninsula on the Atlantic coast and is the westernmost city in the Old World and on the African mainland.. In 1444, the Portuguese reached the Bay of Dakar, initially as slave-raiders, but were repulsed by the natives on the shores.. Peaceful contact was finally opened in 1456 by Diogo Gomes, and the bay was subsequently referred to as the "Angra de Bezeguiche" (after the name of the local ruler)..The city is home to as many as 20,000 French expatriates.. France still maintains an air force base at Yoff and the French fleet is serviced in Dakar's port..
