Default Dakar:)

Thanks to SPEED channel we are getting some good coverage of the Dakar rally.

Why Subaru is not in Dakar?
Answer:Subaru is not that big of a company. Mitst. is much bigger in auto and other misc. divisions. Mistsu. have been in the Dakar rally for many years and it has a strong marketing campaign due to their numerous victories.

Subaru has concentrated on one area of motorsports: WRC. (thank god) Marketing the Subaru Impreza as a "rally inspired and tested car" in the WRC speaks many words. For Subaru to now start a Dakar team too is very expensive. Even the lower end independent teams are spending serious $$$ to operate and race in Paris- Dakar. I have personal connections with a certain Baja Off-Road team that is very very well funded independently yet, they even think that its not worth the $$ of competeing in Dakar. However, they might do it once to say "I've raced Dakar"

A Forrester? Have you seen those dunes? How about a Forrester riding on top of a Isuzu big rig?

Default another Dakar Rally question

What do these racers do the rest of the year? Are there other Rallyraids that we never hear about?

I have been paying attention to Dakar for the last three years and I never hear any of their names the rest of the year in motorsports news.

Meoni, Cox, Kleinschmidt, Masuoka, Schlesser etc. ?

P.S. there is a good article about ProDrive in this weeks Autoweek.
