Stephane Peterhansel has won the Paris Dakar for the 13th time, Loeb second.

7wins in cars, 6 on motorcycle. He is hardcore.

Russians won the trucks as usual

Looks like MSV is buying Donington. No way this doesn't lead to the track trying to get the British GP if Silverstone drops it.
Not sure it will. MSV run their circuits fairly pragmatically; invest to keep the circuits running as they need to but nothing ostentatious. The cost to get the circuit up to spec means it's a vanity project that already brankrupted one lot, and MSV won't be interested in doing that.

Toyota said the only way they can compete with Peugeot at the Dakar is with a 2WD buggy with massive wheels.
Please build it.

In Kimoa we believe that, regardless of what occurs outside, life is what happens within. Freedom is a state of mind, and limitations are too. We always chose freedom. We believe that if something frightens you a little, but it makes you happy, you should go for it. That's the essence of adventures.


I heard they cancelled the stage and feared the worst. Awful.

No but I heard there was a ton of snow and ice in monte carlo this year and the issue was the guy hitting black ice, probably would've happened with the old cars too sadly. A lot more safety in rally events should go to where spectators can go versus the cars themselves.

Yeah, unless you have studded tires, and even then, you're hosed on black ice.

MY WOLRD IS FIRE AND GO TEAM VENTURE

There is video where the spectactor in question is on the side of the road on the outside in a ridiculously risky location. Died of a heart attack rather than being hit but the real question will be what the hell he was doing in such a dangerous location. Utterly no fault on Paddons behalf and crowd control was in place. Its drat near impossible to seal off a stage at the Monte as well

Edit : There is a story that the spectactor in question slipped from a higher location. Heart attack rather than impact does seem to be the main cause of death

Even in an area you think is safe there there two cardinal rules -

1) Put something between you and potential cars

2) Escape route.

The corner Paddon went off had neither.

The actual video is up on Youtube if you feel like watching it.
