OT: Dakar Rally

Post  RiZZa on Mon Jan 10, 2011 9:40 am

I've been keeping up with it this year and the action has been pretty good. In terms of crashes, watching a quad rider get spat off after going round a corner sideways was funny but ended his race and the truck that rolled in dunes was odd as it was at the top and fairly flat (they didn't show how it rolled). There's also a MINI Countryman thats 4wd Shocked Also the dunes that these guys are driving through/down are the same ones from Top Gear Bolivia. Anyone else watching it ?

yeah ive been watching rizza, its awesome ####.
The Mini is (was) built off the same chassis as the BMW X3 cc cars.

Best truck roll over was a couple of days ago. Rolled it, and was snatched back over by another truck, the long way. (side, roof, side then wheels)

This has been one of the better Dakars in the last few years.

I have been downloading all the days and am slowly watching it but it is quite good. I loved the fact Robbie Gorden used a little fiat to pull the Hummer off a rock. Very Happy

Was funny watching him treat it like a rental unless fiat gearboxes are really #### ? Interesting to see some TRAXXAS advertising on his hummer for 6 days unless until a wheel bearing flogged out.

I have now discovered watching the Dakar episodes settle Zoey very efficiently and she goes to sleep. Will be caught up in no time if this keeps happening. Very Happy
