An excellent dive into the differences in the old and new model of Hilux racing bakkie.

I thought James Alexander looks a bit old for Dakar and checked - he's about my age ::)

Just shows, where there's passion and a will, you'll find a way :thumleft:

True - there is not a too old for Dakar and certainly there have been many 50+ year olds compete. Carlos Saintz is 58 and Stephane Peterhansel is 55. Last year saw Yoshimasa Sugawara (from Japan), a 73 years old truck driver!

There was a guy in his early 60's I think, riding Malle Moto, every second year, so he could save up by missing a year each time.  :biggrin:
Franco Picco has been riding Dakar since the 80’s. He is 65

Prologue done and dusted. Ross a great 4th. Brabec and BB 1&2 and on song. Toby 9th. Academic at this stage but the show has started.  :ricky: :ricky: :ricky: :ricky: :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

Not too sure whether you guys remember Brian Baragwanath who came second in the dakar a few years ago on a quad?

He has now built his own vehicle which is powered by a 5.8 Chev motor. Brian evidently kicked Geniel's arse a few times locally so it will be interesting to see how he does, especially without big support structures that the other manufacturers have.

Waiting in anticipation for the Saffers in the cars, some proper young guns like Henk & Brett, Brian & Taye.  Tyd dat hulle die toppies se gatte bietjie skop  :lol8:

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:

I think importantly one needs to also mention that he has teamed up with our dinky darling of last years Dakar, Taye Perry, who has kicked many a guys arse locally and in the Dakar on two wheels!  :3some: :3some: :3some:

Would not hold my breath on the Nighter - certainly got enduro skills but are they adaptable to rallye?? Guess he may surprise  ???
