2015 Dakar race begins...



The 37th edition of the DAKAR begins in earnest today, as the traditional Super Stage ceremonial round took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina yesterday...

this year's race will once again be ultra grueling, and I'm sure packed full 'O surprises, although I'd expect for the Mini's to once again compete for overall honours, as I'm coyly noting this year's BMW Flotilla as;


Although I was indeed surprised when futilely searching 'round duh Intrawoods, nee Zed Internetz for any info on this prestigious race to discover that Peugeot is making its return to the "DAK-CAR with a three car "Works" effort featuring an All Star driver line-up...


While I'm ARSE-sumin' Robby 'Dirtman Gourdoun (Gordon) will be contesting the event in his Monster Hummer again, although Robby will have company in the 2WD camp, since Peugeot's also chosen this route over the tried 'N true 4WD that Mini uses to currently obliterate the field!

Also ARSE-sumin' the race will once again be shown in 30min vignettes on "Peacock-lite," nee NBCSN, most likely with "The Voice," aka Leigh Diffey narrating? But as ALWAYS! Check your local listings...



Notes
Obviously, it's early days yet, but our "Hero" Robby Dirtman "Gordoun )Gordon) finishes off Day-1 in second place aboard his 2015 HST Gordini, while last year's winner Nani Roma won't be repeating, having suffered a 6hr mechanical delay!


"Peacock-lite" (NBCSN) will indeed be airing this year's Dakar, beginning its coverage on Monday, January 5th. For program show times, see below, although be aware that it states "Subject to Change."
