Dakar - 2017

The 2017 Dakar is coming up fast, 2-14 Jan.

I plan to try to keep up with it and post some updates here.

This is their latest D minus posting...does anyone know anything about this new category?

Click the image to open in full size.

The normal categories are trucks, cars, bikes and ATVs. What's a UTV and what's the point of this new category?

The 2016 route adds Paraguay for the first time and this year skips Chile.

Unless I missed him, he isn't listed.

These are a blast to drive. It's like a small dune buggy.
