Hee hee - I'd love to do that one too, but can't afford it this year...

But then I might see you in January 2011, you never know x

Have ASO made that announcement yet?!

Dakar Classic by Auriol?

This is completely new to me, an Italian rally driver told me today he hope to join a new Paris Dakar "Classic", managed by Auriol, which should leave from Paris at the beginning of 2011.... any clue? Can't find anything on the web !

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?

Fun, I looked at those as well but am committed to go to Mongolia in August for the scenery

I'm not sure at this point what my next goal will be, but probably spring '11 before I can drum up the $$ for another one, Heroes looks fun. Planning some other riding this fall which might include a run to SoCal to store the bikes for a segmented long'ish term run to SA.

Silverstone from Jasper is headed to Tunisia too do you know him?

No official announcement still, but rumors for Argentina/Chile are getting louder (Africa wasn't very likely at any time anyway).

Meanwhile, Chile is looking for sponsors to finance the 7 million USD which are reported to be asked by the ASO.

It is certainly a headache for ASO at the moment... (although not as much of headache as the Chileans are suffering of course).

Since we are all sitting around the campfire speculating, I wonder if they could not use some of the stages (and logistics) from their Silk Way rally last year?

For some reason bikes weren't allowed?! - but if that issue could be overcome, then maybe heading east is the way to go?
