    Hmm...noticed some WRC names on the car list. Guess this is what they do when the season's over.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    I'd imagine none of the active drivers are on the list. Their season starts in two weeks time and the tests are even sooner I believe.
    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    Isn't Dakar in Senegal?

    Does anyone know if Speed Channel will be broadcasting coverage of the Rally this year? Is any station in America covering it?

    Yes Dakar is in Senegal. I know Eurosport always broadcasts it, so if you can receive that,you've got it

    OLN did a quick feature on it. I remember seeing a VW Touraeg fly over a stranded biker.

    No idea... I think both Jan and Gerard de Rooy really want to make up the losses they had last year. And Beckx is a great driver of course. I hope it will be a hard battle between a few drivers...
