    Shhh.. don't tell anyone but this is how we will do the tracking next year

    That Iphone tracker works fantastically well. Even when you are out of signal, it keeps track and then uploads/updates the track as soon as it back in signal range.

    We used it on the Amageza rally in South Africa last year and it was amazing: you could literally see the guy slowing down for the corners etc. Of course it works well in good cellphone reception, on the Dakar there is not a lot of that.

    Seriously, ASO really are heading for a f***ing kicking. Parisian Pricks!

    It's like calling an Israeli a Palestinian, or vice / versa.

    The one consolation is they haven't called an Aussie a bloody Kiwi - death and destruction, would follow.

    The ASO has removed all listings of WPs and CPs in their Live Timing Page.

    13:07 : Coma and Despres still playing the waiting game

    Second and third at CP2, Marc Coma and Cyril Despres are nearly riding neck and neck: only 1’04 separates them with a little more than 60 kilometres left to go. Both men are however, more than 4 minutes behind Joan Barreda and are under threat from Paulo Gonçalves.
