Spectating Dakar 2014??

Assuming it's still in South America, which it looks like it will be, my girlfriend and I are planning a driving trip from Texas to South America to spectate at the 2014 Dakar.

Yes, driving, not riding. Going to take a Toyota truck on this one. Something to camp out of.

Not worried about the trip down and back. Did it in 1990 and there's lots of coverage on that from overlanding sites that share all the wheres and hows.

Looking for info on following the circus, camping near the teams, getting into the bivouacs, etc...

Saw this topic on bivouac access with some tips on buying or begging a one day pass: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=833709

Does anything like that exist for the entire event? Is it easier to be attached some way to a team? Does the ASO have spectating guides or something like that?

I've followed Dakar for years through TV and print coverage, and for the last decade on the internet. I never paid attention to spectating resources or oppertunities because I was always in North America.

Now that I have the freedom to take off for months at a time I want to see it live.
