View Full Version : The Dakar Rally is underway

It continues to be held in Argentina and Chile rather than Africa due to the threat of terrorism. Television coverage on Versus seemed to have been kept a secret until today. My on-screen guide on Verizon merely lists it as Off Road Desert Series. Anyway, half-hour highlight shows are daily at 3:30 pm and repeated at midnight. Today is an exception with repeats at 7:30 pm and 1:00 am.

Among the favorites are:
Cars -
Carlos Sainz VW Tourag
Mark Miller (USA) VW Tourag
Stephane Peterhansal BMW X3
Krzysztof Holowczyc BMW X3
Orlando Terranova BMW X3
Leonid Novitskiy BMW X3
Robby Gordon (USA) Hummer (rear wheel drive)
Guerlain Chicherit Mini Countryman
Motorcyles -
Jonah Street (USA) Yamaha
Quinn Cody (USA) Honda
