The 2012 Dakar Rally is a 14-day race with stages that vary from 500 to 560 miles per day (9,000km in total) spread across Argentina, Chile, and Peru. This is the first time in race history the drivers have been greeted in Peru, so as you can imagine the excitement was high.

I met up with family and friends of Peru's top quad drivers, Ignacio Flores Seminario to hear what they had to say about today's event. I also had a chance to speak with Ignacio to find out what Living the Dream means to him.

Reflecting back on the day's photos, I realized my favorites were not just of the race, but the emotions captured of the Peruvian people. There's no doubt the drivers felt welcome as they drove through Peru - A country known for its rich history and culture. On this day, I was proud to welcome the drivers to this amazing country.

As today's stage ended, the drivers made there way into the valley back at camp as they prepare for 2 more stages of the race before finishing in Lima.
