    Polaris RZR XP Dakar RallyAfter 14 days and 5,000 miles of racing, a pair of Xtreme+ Polaris RZR XPs finished at the top of the UTV class at the Dakar Rally.

    Willy Alcarz finished 40th overall, winning both the T3 (UTV) at the SOLO Car classes, while Nicolas Duclos and S├ębastien Delaunay teamed up to finish 56th overall and second in the T3 class. All told, 449 vehicles started the grueling Dakar Rally and 299 finished, including motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, cars, and trucks.

      The International Auto Federation (FIA) has created a new category that allows side-by-sides to compete in off-road events under FIA rules.

      Side-by-sides can now race under the T1-2 Light Weight Buggy category, which was specially made for side-by-sides like the Polaris Ranger RZR, Yamaha Rhino, Arctic Cat Prowler, Kawasaki Teryx, and Can-Am Commander.

      This new category gives drivers the chance to outfit their stock machines with additional safety equipment and other materials to compete in FIA sanctioned events.

      Those curious can check out the new Light Weight Buggy T1-2 category rules online at www.FIA.com or directly by clicking here.
