The Gazoo Toyotas packed and ready to go! Min dae!!!!  :thumleft:

If they have their stickers on them, then they must have gone through scrutineering surely? Did they fly them over to France and back again, only to have to fly them then to South America?

I thought once through scrutineering they would have been in a Parc Ferme'?

Not sure about the sticker story. The riders were sent their stickers?

No, you have to have your bike in France or South America to go through scrutineering.

OK - maybe because their bikes are there already I guess. But saw this that made me think stickers but probably just publicity https://www.facebook.com/groups/215095118546883/permalink/1673165829406464/

Vehicles presented in Le Havre already have their stickers but still have to go through final scrutineering. Rest will get theirs in Lima at scrutineering, which runs from the 3rd to the 5th of Jan.

Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

I think the lead teams get their stickers early...regardless of scrutineering.

Most of the scrutineering has been done last month in France, the bulk of entrants veichles left by container ship as it was cheaper than flying, those that had the cash would be the ones that have flown in and will be scrutineered in South America. From what I have been reading on Lyndon Poskitt and the Dakar FB pages.

Factory teams go in 40" containers other competitors go on a Ro-Ro ship, cheaper option.

Frustrating that we are starting the race only on the 6th. I wonder if old Ettienne is getting pressure from his Mrs. that he needs to be home for Christmas and New with the family. ;D
