See Gazoo is fielding 4 crews in the 2021 Dakar and one of the navigators are named Brett Cummings. Is that the Brett that has done a couple of Malle Motos?

This uncle says it's an all new route, every bit of it and they have deliberately made it slower and more technical. Every stage includes dunes (last year I learnt that that isn't as obvious as I thought it might be, it's isn't just sand everywhere over there)

complete with a pic of Brett whom some of us were fortunate enough to meet at his Wild Dogs Dakar fundraiser a couple of years ago, in case there was still any doubt it isn't the same chap now navigating in a bakkie :P

The 2021 Dakar Rally will feature the lowest participation of the last 25 editions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Compared to the 541 participants (334 vehicles) of the last South American edition in Peru in 2019, and the 563 (342 vehicles) of the first Saudi edition in 2020, the 2021 Dakar will have 440 participants (266 vehicles), according to the provisional entry list published by organiser Amaury Sport Organisation.

This represents a 22% drop in participants and a 24% drop in registrations, the lowest since 1995.

Despite the significant drop in entries, there will be no shortage of favourites in motorcycles, with all KTM, Honda, Husqvarna, Yamaha, Hero and Sherco riders in the list.

In the cars category, Carlos Sainz Sr and Lucas Cruz will sport the #300 after winning their third Dakar this year.

The rest of the top drivers will be also there, including Nasser Al-Attiyah, Stephane Peterhansel, Sebastien Loeb with the new BRX T1, Nani Roma, Giniel de Villiers, Yazeed Al Rajhi and Jakub Przygonski.

In addition, it remains to be seen how many will be registered for the new Dakar Classic, the regularity competition for historic vehicles that aims to revive the legacy of the rally.

“We know that we will have less competitors, that’s almost for sure,” he said.

“We have worked a little on the price offer, but we will surely lose registrations due to the world economic situation. The important thing is to be able to go ahead with the 2021 Dakar in Saudi Arabia.”

Castera and the roadbook team have been completing the route of the 43rd edition of the Dakar several times since last September. The event will be officially presented on November 25.

The number of participants is still subject to change, as there are usually last-minute changes ahead of the start of the event.

@Rallyerider 2

If you can ever get yourself some connectivity whilst on the race and throw a few lines in here, it would be hugely appreciated.

Also, any info on the car you care to share. There's a bunch on rally nerds, myself included, who love anything to do with rally.
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)
