The Dakar Rally 2020 open this weekend. The year 1996: also known as the 1996 Paris-Dakar Rally, was the 18th running of the Dakar Rally event. It began on 29 December 1995 in Granada, Spain – it was the second year the event began away from the traditional starting point of Paris – and ended in the Senegalese capital of Dakar on 14 January 1996. Mitsubishi with this short version of Pajero V6 end up in 3rd, 6th and 7th place, that was not in line with the goal from the Mitsubishi Ralliart team. But later and in total they won 12 Dakar Rally before the history Mitsubishi- Dakar was over.
