    Only a flight over the region can allow the Nazca Lines, mysterious motifs created in the ground more than 2,000 years ago, to be admired ! The route of the special stage creates another line on the map of Peru which looks like a sand dragon. Although the areas of dunes are evenly spread out, the competitors will definitely remember one of them, which made a deep impression on the reconnaissance team. The dunes follow one after another continuously for almost twenty kilometres, transporting the drivers to a new dimension. As the sand will remain firm in this string of dunes, it will help the drivers to cross them without too much difficulty. But the most skilled dune-crossers will nevertheless be able to create a surprise, in particular three days before the final finish. Those who remember how to perform the “Mauritanian swerve” can save some precious minutes.

    Man, I must be getting old...I knew exactly what that was the moment I saw it...Its the Sarnac (Sarlac?) Pit from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi with Luke Skywalker out on the plank about to jump and catch his lightsaber that is launched from R2-D2...Uhhhh....yeah...ummm...I have a 6 year old son OK???

    And actually this would have been more appropriate if the Dakar was back in Africa as those desert scenes were filmed in Tunisia I believe...
