To all 4by & motorsport enthusiasts (and isn't that most of us)- the Dakar Rally starts on the 5th thru to 20th. I think SBS will have edited highlights from 6th.
I'm hankering for the ToeRags to have a win for a change.
The only problems forecast will be the threatened attacks by Al-Qaeda in some areas...sure makes the chance of hitting a Roo in Oz look tame!!

I'm about to sign up to Foxsports for the month, so hopefully they will have more coverage than SBS or I will be a tad annoyed

So, it's just the same 1/2 hr of recycled stuff that's the same as the pathetic free to air coverage then? The only difference being you get it repeated 3 times a day and pay for it?

Why don't they have more coverage of the guys down the order instead of only showing Mitsubishi, BMW and VW with their huge budgets?
Much more interesting seeing some small guys struggling to overcome and finishing rather than seeing a team with a truck load of spares who can rebuild a car each night.

maybe a rocket launcher and 50 cal mounted to the top of each entrant may keep Al Qaeda at bay

My brother in law is the only Australian to drive a car in the Dakar, about 11 years ago. He is in negotiations with Isuzu about 2008
