Congrats must go to Aussie Bruce Garland and his team for coming 11th overall in their DMax Isuzu. Well done!

Watched every TV viewing of the race also on the internet and as always, the Dakar, did not disappoint. Some fantastic scenery, some incredible driving terrain and man O man, never seen so much dust...ever!


Where are you now, Stephan?.........LOL


Cheers

Would of loved to seen Carlos Sainze win. That roll-over down the 4m bank into the dry river bed should not have happened.

I think for spectacular scenery and mind numbing challenging stages this rally has been a winner. Wonder if Mitsubishi will go back to Pajes or stick with the Lancers?

Hi Dunc.
What a great rally. It certainly lived up to previous Dakar's.
Watching the competitors tackling those immense sand dunes was one of the many highlights.
It was good to see VW win.Back to the drawing board for the Mitsubishi diesels!!!.
Cheers.

And it's the T2 class that matters as they are the closest thing to a real 4x4 that regular people can go down the street & buy, not just a fibreglass shell with $500,000 worth bits & a team of 70 backing it up :-)

Sorry Axel but the L200 is a Mitsubishi. The Toyota VDJ 200 came in 14th.

Hi . When they have done it more than once you can start to brag. Wait till they go back to the Pajero's, silly boys made a wrong choice.

Arrr stop being childish

The post was aimed directly at Stephan who had lots to say before the event. A bit of tongue in cheek. If sales were equated to the Winning of the Dakar X amount of times then Mitsubishi would be up there with Toyota and others. But they aren't.

Anyway Volkswagen were the winners.
