    Default Our FMTV cousins are participating... DAKAR 2019

    best under covered motorsport event in the world.

    THE DAKAR..... https://www.dakar.com/en

    XXXXX' yearly seems to have the best commentary and educated discussions on trucks like ours and other 4x4's in the Rally. Adventureriders usually the best for the bikes. Often enthusiast that are members of those sites will even go to the event as spectator and to report back to friends on the board. Ton of great places to follow the cars.

    each year Dekar's own site seems to suck on the reporting.


    UPDATE.... scratch Pirate4x4...... they aint got shiat this year. very little english coverage... arrrg..... Im angry (not that anyone cares about that lol)

    Interesting how Big Trucks became a rally class: The rules state that if you receive mechanical assistance from your pit crew, then you are out of the race. However, competitors can help each other on the course.....so the service trucks became competitors.T4 is now one of the most popular classes to watch.
    1997 M1078, nothing special about it.
