    Relatively short special tomorrow, it may prove difficult to make up time - but a long long way to go :ricky

    Tuesday 3rd January - Stage 2 - Resistencia ">„> San Miguel de Tucumán

    Motorcycles-quad bikes-cars-UTV - Selective section: 275km - Total 803km
    Trucks - Selective section: 284km - Total 812km

    Chaco, heads or tails

    The regulars believe they know Argentina, but they have yet to encounter the “Chaco”! In this region chalk-full of history for connoisseurs of world rally competition (Transchaco, etc.), patience and a cool head will be invaluable assets, especially when it comes to the dust. Unless, of course, it turns to mud

    08:03 Ramirez forced to drop out
    Ivan Ramirez was ready to start his very first Dakar at the age of 23 years, but unfortunately is not present on the list of starters in Asuncion. The Mexican, who won the Dakar Challenge and came 14th on the Rally of Morocco, has had to withdraw due to health problems.

    Did i miss anything?
