Yup. Later on in the rally they are in a -6 time zone, but the first few days are -5.
Attached are the start times and estimated special times for the whole rally.

I missed this from Brett late last night:

"Hey all. This will be my last post until I manage to hack into someone's wifi in the bivouac. Today was filled with lots of excitement and I think we are all overwhelmed with the hype of the event and the spectators. The Argentinians are crazy about this race! Roadbooks are marked, 3am rise for an early start. First bike at 4:30. Last bit of comfort in my hotel bed for the next 2 weeks.

A huge big thanks to Trevor from Strocam Mining for making this possible. Thanks to Barry and Ray Ogilvie from Wewa for their contribution, A big thanks to all my other sponsors for all the help. Without these guys, it would never be possible.
 Lets get this show on the road.

My office for the next two weeks"

Phew some of these liaisons are LONG! They must be tiring and poke the mouses a bit? To start with a 400km+ liaison must be a ball ache (literally and figuratively)  ::)

The conundrum that is life...
You have to be absolutely smashed to have the guts to attempt it,
But perfectly sober to achieve any success!
