So with the 2015 Dakar coming to a close and in it’s final stages, I thought it would be nice to have a nostalgic look back at one of the most iconic years in Dakar history. The 1984 Paris – Dakar Rally was the 6th running of the event and was of course the year that gave us Jacky Ickx and his legendary Rothmans Porsche 911 (953).
