Saw some peugeot engineers at breakfast on Saturday morning at our hotel. I didn't hear anything about them running in TT or Class 1 so I wasn't exactly sure if they were supporting a bike team or what exactly the deal was. So I asked the guy if they were running one of their Dakar cars and in broken English he said "yes, we are here to test".

Did anyone see the cars? Any photos? Were they racing in the event or just happened to be testing their Dakar cars the very same weekend? What's the scoop?

Inside scoop is the Peugeot Dakar team is here testing their vehicles for the upcoming race next year. They have been spotted in Reno, Parker, and many locations in between.

Yea I was leaving Parker in June and I saw one driving down hwy 95. No support trucks but all dusty.
