DAKAR 2017: 39th annual Rally Raid begins this year in Paraguay




As 'Ol Bob Varsha would say: Turn U-P The Volume! It's time to G-O Racing...


Ah, so much for stayin' away from Thy Keyboard, albeit how could I forget to "Pencil in" scribblin' about this year's DACK-CAR' Rally, eh? As hopefully this teaser will be mercifully short 'N sweet, since I just started perusing for News upon thoust yearly epic Desert Raid on New Year's eve upon returning home from being Oot 'N Aboot' Up North Eh!

As this year's Dakar, taking place Jan 2-14, has already run the Perfunctory Opening Day's Special Stage, with the 39th running of the DACK-CAR' ramping up in earnest tomorrow, when Y'all can watch the first of Peacock-lites' (NBC Sports Network) 30min vignettes beginning at 2:30PM Pacific. (Jan 3rd)


And whilst we won't have Robby Dirtmann Gourdoun' (Gordon) to poke fun 'bout his Humdinger adventures in his Monster Gordini Hummer, as Robby's still mourning the alleged murder suicide of his father and Step-Mum, we'll have a new Yank behind the wheel of one of BMW X-Raid's John Cooper Mini's, when rookie Yank' Bryan Menzies attempts to prevail in this year's Dakar behind the wheel of the No. 312.

UPDATE
Obviously I missed another Memo, as Leigh Diffey announced to Mwah during NBC Sport's first Day's Dakar coverage that Bryce Menzies wouldn't be taking part this year due to a nagging injury suffered last August; leaving Honda's Ricky Brabec as the lone American participant this year...


As perhaps it's just Mwah, but I found it nearly impossible to find any decent Cars category previews for this year's premiere Desert Rally on Zed Internetz', which just speaks volumes of how little Attenzione is being given to the Super Bowl 'O Rally Raids; but I digress...


Lastly, it'll be fine with me if Aussie Toby "Duh Prices Right!" Price goes back-2-back on two wheels with consecutive victories this year, as he's my current favourite Bikes rider, whilst American Ricky Brabec returns with Honda for a second assault aboard the Factory #9 entry...
