Volkswagen introduces Race Touareg 3 ahead of 2011 Dakar - The ...
The legendary Dakar Rally really is misnamed. While the event was born as the Paris-Dakar Rally in the mid-‘70s, its history has been sketchy to say the least. Different routes, different starting points, but one thing was always for certain: the rally started in Europe and finished in Africa. That is until 2008, when terrorist threats forced its cancelation. Through some herculean efforts, the race was reborn in South America, but retains the Dakar name for recognition. Some competitors and enthusiasts claim that the Dakar has lost some of its magic, but there’s still enough popularity [suite...]

Perfect Porsche TV: the 1986 Paris Dakar

The guys wanted me to have a look at the beta version of the site, to get a feel for what they had available. I came away impressed. Along with other clips, there’s the story of the 1986 Dakar rally, which Porsche won with the 959. Dakar is my favourite event. The victory Porsche enjoyed here was not the desert racing cakewalk many people probably think. The race covered 15,000 kms in 22 days, across insane terrain.
