    fb: LATEST NEWS: Sadly we have to report that both R2R cars are out of the Dakar Rally. Ben & Barney’s car suffered terminal mechanical failure on Stage 2 and Tony & Quin’s car finished Stage 2, but suffered damage to roll cage meaning it was unsafe to continue racing. The T4 truck remains in the race and we will send a further update asap.

    bummer :cry




    and I am not sure if somebody answered: did PAU get his bike back?

    Yes they would have, but have you see these guys commentating? They see something and go wild, they talk and shout with so much passion they have their eyes closed half the time. :lol3
