I saw mention of the Argentina Dakar on one of the airplanes. Should be pretty cool.

Too bad they had to move it from it's traditional home in Africa. I guess running for your life while rebel forces are shooting at you wasn't very popular with the racers.

I Think this has been planned for years, even before Last years was canceled

Dakar is a city on the coast of Africa, and the race has been held on the African continent since it's inception. The course changed annually to snake around political instability, but moving it from Africa to South America was due to the fact that the rally needed to find a home.

It wasn't called the Paris-to-Dakar Rally for nuthin' :buford: (hence the name change...even though it's no in Dakar, either)

I Just thought that it was something different is all. Cool

I was aware of the Paris to Dakar and Dakar was the city it ended in
