The "Dakar" 2011 thread!

Postby Crossa on Wed Dec 08, 2010 9:07 am

Here goes!

I've been out of touch a bit but as I understand a gazzilion tons of raw racing power is already on a boat somewhere making its way to South America.

Among the trucks, after a years absence, Gerard de Rooy and team are back to play, as well as a MAN squad featuring three racing trucks and support team, minus former winner Hans Stacey who has vanished into thin air it seems. Will that stop the Kamaz Master team from winning yet again? Probably not :moose:

Chicherit will be the only X-Raid driver who will pilot the MINI. The other six drivers will be behind BMW X3 CC's. All seven cars will be powered by the same BMW engine.

Meh, danger my arse! They should at least have the decency of changing the name of the rally. Don't call it the Dakar. :talkhand:
