Funny--Don't see any mention of needing an IRC or a diesel to win this year's rally. Nobody expected Peugeot to dominate as they have.
In other racing series organizers occasionally confiscate an engine or other parts to examine them more closely. Does anyone know if the ASO ever does this?

Maybe the Dakar has gotten so competitive it is like all other professional motorsports where you need a new car ever 1-2 years. Can't keep the old designs for ever.
