The 2020 edition of the legendary Dakar Rally will take place in Saudi Arabia.
Organisers of the annual endurance race have reportedly signed a five-year agreement to hold the event in the Gulf country.
It's been held in South America since 2009 after relocating from its African heartland due to security issues.
