Transorientale 2008

Instead of this year's Dakar we now have this. Set up by Rene Metge, Transorientale 2008 will start in St.-Petersberg on June, 12 and finish in Peking on 28th. Thus, more than 10000 kilometers through Russia, Kazakhstan and China.
In the end of February more than 300 entrants were registered, having a $10000 for entering in mind. About 120 will ride quadricycles, more than 100 - cars, as for trucks - it is still unknown. The registration is not yet over and will last till March, 31.
I'll try to catch them when they'll pass through Moscow province, though they won't visit Moscow itself, AFAIK. At least, the route map shows they won't.

Well, actually, any new rally-raid could be dropped 'instead of Dakar'.
I meant a bit another thing South American rally lasting about 6000km was quite short and for me couldn't be a truly Dakar successor, while this one is much longer.

They are, that one is actually "Dakar" this is just another long race I guess. You'd have to do a search on the forums to find the SA one, I posted about it.

Sooo, things are going well now... On June, 12 all the cars should arrive to Rogachevo, Moscow province where I hope to catch them.
What is interesting is that Jean Louis Schlesser will drive Porsche Cayman S. At least, this is what the sources read. Very impatient to know what does this Cayman look like.

Today was a really black day for Transorientale.
Yesterday in the morning Xu Lang, Chinese driver, suffered a very serious injury - as he tried to help the other car which got stuck. The towing cable has torn and hit Xu Lang in his head. Unfortunately, Chinese driver died today in a hospital.
Moreover, today in the morning on a 6th rally stage an accident occured involving #42 KTM motorcycle driven by Philippe Tonin and #401 Kamaz truck. Philippe Tonin became a second victim of this bloody day.

My deepest condolences.

Have you got any pictures of the new Schlesser machine?

Did all the planned Dakar entrants enter this race?

Schlesser's machine turned out to be a standard Cayman.

Quote:
Jean-Louis Schlesser to follow Transorientale in a Porsche Cayman S

The two time Dakar winner and world endurance champion will have the chore of driving a Porsche Cayman S from St. Petersburg to Beijing and the winner of the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation.



This idea is very dear to race organiser René Metge. The relationship between Metge and Porsche is along standing affair, which took off when the Frenchman took top honours in the firm’s 959 four wheel drive car on the
Dakar. “I would like to organise a Rally Raid for GT cars beginning in 2009. It will not be an easy task to complete but I love a challenge”, said Metge.

Behind the wheel of the absolutely standard Porsche Cayman GT, Jean Louis Schlesser will serve two roles. First he will have to do everything it takes to make sure the car makes it to the finish line in China but he will also have to run his team with José-Luis Montverde given the job as driver.

Schlesser’s passenger in the Cayman will be Marc Victor who won the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation award, which rewards up and coming talent from the world of cinema, photography and literature. And thus Marc Victor will get to live the Rally Raid experience in the company of one of the sport’s all-time greats.
