The organizers of the Dakar Rally have reduced the top speed for the Truck category in the 2025 event, from 140 km/h to 135 km/h, citing safety reasons. This decision has sparked controversy, with the defending Truck class champion expressing his displeasure. The change aims to address the speed difference between trucks and smaller vehicles, but the drivers argue it will put them at a disadvantage. Despite the setback, the 2025 Dakar Rally promises to be an exciting event with the continued participation of the top contenders.
