    Racedezert and Breauman reports..
    Shake-Up in the 2012 SCORE Series? Quinn Cody bailed JCR HONDA and appears to be signing up with KTM for a few reasons, including a chance to get a DAKAR ride. We've did a little dumpster digging and came up with this photo from yesterday at KING OF THE MOTOS.

    Where'd you get that info SB? BlueBull states his ideas are based from a "little birdy" but no qualification from you. Care to elaborate?

    BlueBull, your spare room ready for me is it??:wink: I should get my "business proposal" to you soon huh.

    Cheers

    Everybody I spoke to at the Dakar confirmed the start will be in Lima, and the finish either in Santiago or Valparaiso. Local boys here in-the-know agree. I have not seen any local press to this effect - yet. Then again I have also been travelling a lot so I could have missed it.

    Regarding Bolivia: Its been in the papers there, so I'm fairly convinced it will happen. I'm just not sure how they intend to deal with flying helicopters at altitude.... :dunno

    I have your room ready mate. :thumb Its a done deal.


    Oh BTW I'm gunning for the Abu Dhabi DC this year, plan to do my entry in the morning. See you there?

    I'm as convinced as anyone on the Lima start, Valparaiso (or Santiago) finish but would love some "real" confirmation. In the mean time I'm happy enough enough to secure a bed at "Bluebull's Bikers Bed & Breakfast":deal:lol3:clap.

    I'd love to do the ADDC but can't manage the time at the moment:cry - not to mention saving all my pennies for the Dakar. As it is I'm in a bit of strife with the Dakar timing and work - you should've seen the client's face when I told them the Dakar is more important than anything else for this year and if they want me to walk now just say the word. The team in the office are trying to figure how they can justify having a TV with SBS channel installed for Dec/Jan:lol3.

    I'll be watching if you're in the ADDC:ear. The tracking system is brilliant for that event and I can watch progress most of every stage live in the background on my PC.

    Cheers

    Sometime during the third week in March is when announcements and confirmations are expected for 2013. Of course, Chile has already been confirmed for the finish. Peruvian officials have been lobbying quite hard for inclusion and for the start to be in Lima. I don't think anyone will be surprised if it is. I expect a Lima start, several Peruvian stages, 1 or 2 in Bolivia, 1 or 2 in Western Argentina, and the rest in Chile. I don't believe the rally will go to the east coast at all for 2013.

    Rally TT Estoril-Marrakech Canceled..

    First edition was in 2010

    The Automobile Club de Portugal (ACP) decided to cancel the test "Rally TT Estoril-Marrakech", registered in the calendars Cup FIA World Rally Championship TT Championship in Portugal All-Terrain, World Championship Rally TT Motorcycle and Scooter TT National Championship, due to difficulties in raising the necessary funds for an organization with the level of quality that is timbre of the ACP.
    Although the ACP does not have spared no effort in trying to put one foot back into competition at the time he received the highest praise of all participants, the current economic situation have failed to achieve the objectives set by the organization regrets the damage that this decision may lead to drivers registered in the respective championships but to take this measure to a considerable distance from the event, is sure that its consequences can be minimized.
    However, the ACP has not abandoned the idea of ​​reissuing this competition and continue to do everything in order to find a financial solution that makes possible the realization of this event with great impact in motorsport nationally and internationally and huge return for our country .
    On the other hand, the ACP wants to use this time to strengthen its total commitment to the organization of other events of All-Terrain included in its sporting calendar for 2012, the Baja Portalegre 500, also entered in the FIA World Cup Rally TT and the World Cup for Bajas Motorcycles, and the 24 Hours TT Vodafone Frontier Village.
