Am I correct in saying that today doesn't have a timed section? Is it just a get out of the city liaison and the racing starts tomorrow (Jan 2nd) ?

Happy New Years

In the UK Dakar coverage starts on Eurosport 2 UK at 7pm Saturday evening with a short 'behind the scenes' show before going to live coverage from BA from 7pm to 8.30 pm.

Don't know about other countries - I suspect you may be able to subscribe/watch live coverage via the Eurosport website http://www.eurosportplayer.co.uk/?partner=yah_co.uk

Problem is using different computers. Makes for a lot of extra effort just figuring out where the hell you left off last time

Cell phone. Just enter the page you left off from in the notes. As long as you keep that updated, you won't have to backtrack.

Yes its just a liaison.


Buenos Aires-Victoria the old way
Road section, 377 km


The Dakar will be respecting the tradition of the first editions, which systematically started on 1st January at place de la Concorde in Paris. This time, the competitors will indeed be passing an obelisk, yet it is the one on the Avenue of 9th July in Buenos Aires, before heading for Victoria, along a road section. The stop-watches will not be ticking for this day of meeting the Argentinean crowds. However, after this first section of the route, the competitors will be setting up for the night in the bivouac.

VW: Allegations of Sexual Harrassment against Kris Nissen

Volkswagen is confronted with allegations of sexual harassment against motorsports director Kris Nissen.


Photo: DPPI

As German print magazine Focus reports today, the car company is investigating serious accusations against the former touring car champion. The incidents in question happened at the Formula 3 season finale in Macau in November, when Nissen reportedly touched a female hotel guest's breast and later attacked an Audi employee who refused to buy him a beer.

Long-time rallye navigator Tina Thörner (SWE) also approached the VW board of directors, reporting that Nissen invited her to grab his crotch to "see what real men are made of". Dakar legend Jutta Kleinschmid (GER) said Nissen had led the team with a "system of fear" and went on to say that she had repeatedly witnessed how Nissen acted inappropriately towards other employees, particularly women.

Stefan Moser, chief of marketing and communications at VW, is quoted saying that "as of now, Kris Nissen will stay with the team. We will investigate and clear up the situation when we are back home". However, if the allegations turn out to be as serious as reported, "we have to act immediately". It is expected that VW will come to a decision before the racing starts on Monday.
