Sometime during the third week in March is when announcements and confirmations are expected for 2013. Of course, Chile has already been confirmed for the finish. Peruvian officials have been lobbying quite hard for inclusion and for the start to be in Lima. I don't think anyone will be surprised if it is. I expect a Lima start, several Peruvian stages, 1 or 2 in Bolivia, 1 or 2 in Western Argentina, and the rest in Chile. I don't believe the rally will go to the east coast at all for 2013.

cross one off..

Rally TT Estoril-Marrakech Canceled..

First edition was in 2010

The Automobile Club de Portugal (ACP) decided to cancel the test "Rally TT Estoril-Marrakech", registered in the calendars Cup FIA World Rally Championship TT Championship in Portugal All-Terrain, World Championship Rally TT Motorcycle and Scooter TT National Championship, due to difficulties in raising the necessary funds for an organization with the level of quality that is timbre of the ACP.
Although the ACP does not have spared no effort in trying to put one foot back into competition at the time he received the highest praise of all participants, the current economic situation have failed to achieve the objectives set by the organization regrets the damage that this decision may lead to drivers registered in the respective championships but to take this measure to a considerable distance from the event, is sure that its consequences can be minimized.
However, the ACP has not abandoned the idea of ​​reissuing this competition and continue to do everything in order to find a financial solution that makes possible the realization of this event with great impact in motorsport nationally and internationally and huge return for our country .
On the other hand, the ACP wants to use this time to strengthen its total commitment to the organization of other events of All-Terrain included in its sporting calendar for 2012, the Baja Portalegre 500, also entered in the FIA World Cup Rally TT and the World Cup for Bajas Motorcycles, and the 24 Hours TT Vodafone Frontier Village.

So... The Dakar and Baja riders are using the DOHC SX/F and Ryan Dungey is using the single cam EXC motor in his supercross bike.

Wasn't Jordi the guy who had to drop out this year because his co driver was so sick of his behavior, deciding it was better not to finish than spend another minute with the guy?
