The opening special will be held entirely on tracks. The main challenge lies in stringing up one valley after another while avoiding the navigational hazards posed by the numerous intersections. Competitors will have to be on the lookout in the stony sections if they want to avoid flat tyres.

Finally we have location mapping - I guess that this gives us lot a more exciting Dakar as we can now see where the competitors actually are. Another good thing to come out of issuing the road book to the drivers 10 minutes before the start.

BRX is not doing that well - but maybe they are biding their time. ;)

*armchair racer mode on* Mind you they do have a relatively easy track to follow what with the recent rains. *armchair racer mode off*
