Monster Energy Honda Team next week dispute the Baja Inka 2017 Paracas 1000, to be held in the same Peruvian desert that will later host the opening of the 2018 Dakar Rally.
The action-packed summer for Monster Energy Honda Team, with races in Spain, the United States, Chile and Argentina, wraps up with the participation in Peru’s Baja Inka in September. The rally will be battled out over four days as riders tackle more than 1000 kilometres of dunes and desert in Ica and Paracas.
Monster Energy Honda Team will be represented by the trio of Paulo Gonçalves, Kevin Benavides and Michael Metge, in a race which will have its base in the city of Paracas to the south of the country’s capital Lima. Proceedings for the Baja Inka 2017 get underway with the administrative checks, ahead of the technical ‘shakedown’, both scheduled for 13th September, prior to first full stage on the following day.
