    Considering how much footage I assume they have, I'm always frustrated with the Dakar coverage. There is probably only 10 minutes of new footage each time.

    They also seem to use the same intro/graphics (which take over a minute of the ~30 minute coverage) for years.

    Yeah, that is a down side to the coverage. The actual lack of race coverage. Oh well, I guess some is better than none.

    It's up there as my favourite event.

    The TV stuff is usually produced while the stage is not yet over for some.

    Some of the motorsport torrent sites have some stuff, but it is all pretty much the same feed for the race footage used everywhere.

    Another option is the videos on the offical site for dribs and drabs or to just get lost on jewtube with the videos from the spectators. Only one corner, but get see a bunch of cars go passed.



    One of the trucks teams seem to be posting a daily video.

    The format is tighter for the day's race against the clock... as are the mountain tracks featuring in the special section. Experts in sliding and on the road will be able to showcase their skills here, as long as they stay constantly focused. Those hunting down the leaders will be on high alert during this route, which has been designed for opportunists. But the programme could also be transformed by any rain: even the strongest competitors do not necessarily perform well on heavy ground.

    Great ride by Price. Gees he looks comfortable and relaxed on the bike. Not as aggressive and loose as Barreda. And he is looking very fit as well. His style and fitness will surely pay dividends as the fatigue sets in.

    Dakar 2016

    Loeb still leads by over four minutes. Sainz is playing the long game or so he reckons. Interesting to see the trucker who has no lower legs being hoisted by a pulley into the cabin by his co drivers. The spirit of adventure burns bright for that guy. Good on him.

    Hopefully we see some actual Dakar type stages, way to much like a long WRC event so far IMO..

    ... Robby Gordon finished Stage 4 in the top 10, losing 8 minutes to Loeb for the day. There is some confusion about where Gordon sits in the overall standings following a one hour time penalty that was assessed today. While Gordon was allowed to leave the bivouac for the night following the mandatory ASO dinner, we have (not) been able to reach him for comment about the exact reason for such a severe time penalty.

    Gordon’s teammate Sheldon Creed continues to move up in the rankings on each day, proving that he is a quick learner (and Robby Gordon made a wise decision when choosing his teammate for Dakar). He finished Stage 4 in 26th place and now sits in 25th overall. Creed did receive a speeding penalty for the day, however the information on his two required GPS units were inconsistent with each other, so the penalty is being protested. The marathon stage required that drivers return to the bivouac for fuel and then leave them in Parq Ferme, where they are not allowed to work on them at all. Fortunately both Gordinis are in good condition, so Team Speed should be resting easy tonight. With a 310 kilometer liaison prior to Stage 5, we expect there will be a few teams sorting out issues on the road in the morning.
    Stage 5
    All round vigilance is required for this second part of the marathon stage: in addition to managing mechanics, particularly the tyres, all the drivers will have to pay attention to their own bodies' reactions. Entry into Bolivia is also marked by an abrupt increase in altitude, rising to 4,600m –the higher point in Dakar's story- during the day's special section. Technically, it is also in this stage that the rally steps up a gear, with the first off-piste sections as well as some navigational gems which might be a headache for some navigators…

    They all carry spares, Pugs and minis can take 3 for these marathon stages and strict parc feme while at the bivouac . Also once out on the stage a team mate can "help" and why they all run support trucks in the actual race, just not allowed "outside" assistance from the teams.

    Toby going well, cracking pace

    Looks like he was pinged for > 40kph over in speed control zone and 4 others up to 15kph over going by the regs. You'd think they'd have to be deaf, gps would be going nuts! Gavatron over there....or no visa left?

    Pics inside the Peugeot suggests there might be an active diff (or maybe just fuel maps) - no lofting wheels battling a spool.

    Forgot Tim and Tom Coronel were running this year in their buggies, bad luck for Tom and Tim's lucky not to be wiped out when his broken down buggy got hit by the truck. Geez..The Coronels are good for making their own videos of whatever theyre racing in be it this or WTCC etc.

    Top ride by Price to get back on the podium. Reckon his fitness and endurance will really shine tomorrow on the 500+km stage.

    And hats off to Loeb schooling them on his first attempt. Best steerer currently walking the earth?

    yep. but he's got a shit tonne of engineering talent and budget behind him to match his driving ability/balls.. his pikes peak car was ultimate and having a reliable Dakar car certainly isn't something to take for granted.
