Sbs telecast

For those in Australia


The annual Dakar Rally is on again in January and SBS will broadcast daily highlights following the cars, trucks, motorbikes and quads as they race through over 8,000 kilometres of merciless terrain from Peru to Chile.

Australia will again have a strong contingent in the Dakar Rally. In the bike category, nine Australians will take to the starting line including Simon Pavey, who will be competing in his ninth Dakar and Rod Faggotter. In the car category, Dakar veteran Bruce Garland will be competing as well as Geoff Olholm and Adrian Di Lallo. Paul Smith will feature in the quad category and Richard Hayes will compete in the truck category.

The 2013 Dakar Rally will begin in Lima, Peru and travel through Argentina to the finish line in Santiago, Chile. For the first time, the desert stages will make an appearance in the first few days of the rally. Both amateur and professional drivers take part in Dakar Rally, which sees them navigate particularly tough terrain, including dunes, mud, camel grass rocks and ergs. The mix of physical toughness, technical performance and spectacular backdrop makes the Dakar Rally one of the highlights of the motor sport calendar.

SBS will also provide coverage online through its SBS On Demand player at www.sbs.com.au/dakar, featuring catch-up highlights of every stage and every class – cars, bikes and trucks, and the SBS On Demand app for iPhone and iPad to keep track of the race on the go.

6 January to 21 January at 5:30pm on SBS ONE.

Just wear 4 pairs of jockstraps on the plane and you will be fine.

Please can you pm me your contact details/coordinates so I can ping you when you get in.

Cool Charapa. Just told GSNorCal I plan to chase at least as far as Tacna, but I hope to go to Calama and then onto Bolivia after that before returing along the Andes all the way home.

Cerro Azul is "millas" from Pisco! Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yeah. 60 kms. But we wanted to stay a bit away from all the craziness in Pisco town and stay somewhere between Asia and Pisco. We will ride out from there.

At Nazca we will stay right in town at Pirwa.

Do you really think we have to wait until 2 days before each stage to get the stage rough location?
