2001 Dakar Rally
Previous: 2000 Next: 2002

The 2001 Dakar Rally, also known as the 2001 Paris-Dakar Rally, was the 23rd running of the Dakar Rally event. The format was revised to reduce the amount of airborne assistance to competitors in favour of assistance vehicles.[1] The 2001 rally was 6,600 miles (10,600 km) long and began in Paris, France, on New Year's Day, passing through Spain, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali before finishing at Dakar in Senegal.[2][3] Jean-Louis Schlesser won the penultimate stage of the rally to take the lead but was penalised one hour for unsportsmanlike conduct.[4] The rally was won by German Jutta Kleinschmidt, who became the first woman to win the event.[5] The motorcycle section of the rally was won by Italian Fabrizio Meoni.[5]
