After 2 stages the Dakar rally (which is actually run in South America) is being led by Geniel De Villiers for Toyota, with the withdrawing of Peugeot, Toyota are favourites to win.

Stage 2 was won by rally legend Sebastian Loeb.

Toyota seem to be doing well, although it was shocking to see how much time Nasser lost by going 1st (always a disadvantage with rallying tbh).

EDIT - I find it weird how you have mini buggies and mini x-raids.

I suppose the impact is magnified at an event like this (lots of dunes etc). The mini thing I cannot explain however.


On running order. The WRC used to base it on championship order for day 1, then rally order for days 2 and 3. I remember a few times in p,aces like Sardinia all the top drivers would slow down to get a better position. Then Loeb would win anyway..

true that. I find it weird how Ogier has gone back tocitroen after he was kicked out for having the audacity to challenge loeb :lol: Hyundai should be interesting this year as Loeb is doing a part time campaign and Neuville is long overdue a championship

Probably the lure of a Frenchman in a French team. Championship wise, Im going with an outside bet of Tanak destroying everybody.

Tanak is secretly the driver I want to win. The dude is good and was underrated. Toyota will no doubt have a great car, but so will hyundai. M-sport should be interesting without ogier

I used to watch these things in the past, but now I can't spare time to find of which channel I can watch anything from any event.

A couple of years ago these guys managed to get to the actual Dakar using a rather unsuitable car:

You know, I still can't believe that we are already past 2010 while actually 20ies are coming fast.

Obviously they haven't returned because South American bandits and mafias are clearly less dangerous than African Islamists.
