    I´ve been saving up money for the last two years to do my next rally and next week I´m finally flying to Morocco. I still need to sort out how to get from Marrakech to Erfoud. Apparently there is a bus transportation to Ouarzazate available, but from there on I haven´t found anything. Can someone tell me if there is a reasonably priced option. If there is other people coming, we could share a rental car plus driver (Marrakech to Erfoud 250€ by 4x4)

    You can check out my progress on the rally on: ralfmolander.com and Ralf Molander Support Group on facebook.

    Cheers,
    Ralf

    Hi,

    Your best option will be to get a cheap 2WD rental car at Marrakesh and drive it to Erfoud. Aprox 500 km, fantastic scenery.

    Not sure. Faria's website and FB mention training for Dakar 2013. Looks like Van Niekerk is listed on a Factory KTM so I wonder if he is backing up Despres for this rally?

    Riaan Van Niekerk is on a team with Darrel Curtis (he finished 22nd last year in dakar on first time out)
    There team is Broadlink Rally

    They are on the factory B team, it is advertised here that Jonny Aubert is also on there team
    But Jonny knows nothing about this when i asked him at ISDE
