I presume he means the 'Africa Race', that Hubert runs now? This year it started from Portimao (Portugal), but to be honest, with the numbers involved this year, I can't see how it is financially viable to run it again?

Alternatively, what was originally billed as the 'Classic' Dakar (in that it was open to classic [Dakar] vehicles, and ran the original route/stages) is the Heroes-Legend that I did last year - that does start in Paris, and does finish in Dakar... however, it now runs in October, not January (as it did for the first three years)...

Maybe you need to ask this Italian chap for a bit more info?
