    Default Dakar 2009 - Argentina, Chile, Argentina.

    So, who's following this?
    I find this way more interesting then Formula 1 or anything like that.
    Lots of Dutch teams so i'm supporting them ofcourse.

    Dakar takes it's toll.

    The 49 year old Pascal Terry got lost on the second day of the rally.
    They never heard anything from him since then, today he's been found dead in the desert.
    He put of his helmet and sat there with food and water next to him.

    R.i.p

    No that's for pussies. They only do 849 miles.
    Dakar does 5900 miles...

    I was watching the highlights every night on Eurosport and some good Dakar action and it seems very likely that the organisers will go back to Argentina/Chile next year so all is good.

    I remember watching highlights of previous Dakars but this years Dakar seems to have been the best and you gotta love those VW Toureg's .

    Shame for Carlos Sainz though definently unlucky with that 'road map problem' cost him any chance of finishing.

    Do they not put GPS trackers in the cars and when they get lost get choppers to help them?

    Never watched it in my life but might check it out.

    Was a real shame for Sainz, especially as a some freak in a Hummer took over the lead.
