The event attracts the country's leading teams in the car, motorcycle and UTV categories, who promise to go full throttle in search of points valid for the Brazilian Rally Raid Championship (CBM and CBA). The 70 drivers and navigators registered so far for the 2024 edition will face a tough race, with lots of gravel, trails, farm roads, sand and high-speed stretches.

Among the official activities are the parallel attractions for the public, such as the prologue, the promotional start with the official opening of the event and the presentation of the race's cast. There will also be an awards ceremony and a concert at Praia da Graciosa.

From June 16, the Convention Center, located in Parque do Povo - Área Verde 406 Sul, Av. NS 10, s/n - Plano Diretor Sul, in Palmas (TO), will open its doors for the teams to set up their boxes in the support park and all the official pre-start programming will take place there, including the race secretariat, inspections and shakedown - training so that the teams can finalize the preparation of their vehicles and competition equipment.

On Tuesday (18), Capim Dourado Shopping will host the Jalapão Rally. The 5.9-kilometer prologue on the circuit near the Palmas cemetery is scheduled for 1 p.m. and then the cars will go to the closed park located in the parking lot.
