Following last year’s intense adventure at Pikes Peak, Peugeot Sport, Red Bull and Total have decided to set their sights on the wide open spaces of South America which provide the backdrop for the toughest cross-country rally of them all.
Inevitably, the decision recalls a particularly successful period in the history of the French team which made an indelible mark on the Dakar by winning the legendary competition four years running from 1987 until 1990, first with the 205 T16 Grand Raid, then with the equally iconic 405 T16 Grand Raid.

KTM is excited to announce that Dakar’s hottest future prospect Sam Sunderland has signed to race for the Red Bull KTM Factory Rally Team for the next three and a half years.
Sam Sunderland, a 24-year-old former motocrosser turned rally racer, is pleased to be joining the factory squad in a bid to unlock his Dakar potential with the ultra-competitive crew that has won the last 13 editions of the notorious rally.
British-ace Sunderland has enjoyed both success and disaster following his Dakar debut in 2012 at just 22 years of age, with competitive results on the days he’s completed during the rally. Sunderland has also achieved success in the British youth championships, UAE MX2 & MX1 Championship titles, UAE National Baja Championship titles in 2010/2011, an Abu Dhabi Desert challenge podium in 2012, a Merzouga Rally win in 2013 plus a stage win in this year’s Dakar event before retiring from the race.

We really DO NOT like to post the series of reports we publish on our website regarding the trademark bullying we experience since 2011 we have on file. This is just a time-line for folks to follow. As well, this is the reason we did NOT open the community yet. After all we dont like to have a agent provocateur post some copyrighted materials and we get the blame. Follow the timeline and you see how all falls in place.... :( Sad but that's the way it is!
So far we have found only files back to 2011 - the pattern is the same more or less from than on...

The Dakar Rally ultimate Marathon Rally Raid Off-Road Desert Race - Dakar 2014 independent - not ASO related - reporting
Dakar Rally Raid Racing Off-Road from Lima, Peru to Santiago de Chile.
Dakar Rally Raid, was for several years operated as subdomain
The operating participants decided to split and become "self-propelled" from the Puro Off-Road entity and e-publish / operate as Dakar Rally, Rally Raid Racing and Endurance Off-Road Racing event-news syndication and race reporting service from the domain.
We are happy as vivid off-road fans and racers to provide freely available obtained information.
Again - similar as a former US president used to say "read our lips":
If you run a search to define "independent" Google will return the following:
"Free from outside control; not depending on another authority"
We dont pretend to be dakar com, we are not associated with dakar com and we receive no funding from dakar com (or A.S.O. - Amaury Sport Organisation)
Please take note of that!
To put that in more "official" terms:

ATTENTION: Our "Dakar Rally Raid"  gPlus brand-page, just like our website, our blogs with our created logo and other appearance are independent operated Offroad Action Motor Sports Fan Site and in no business relation or affiliation with A.S.O. - Amaury Sport Organisation.
You will find this information also at ALL off our other web presences related to that domain to avoid any confusion.

The automotive motor-sport race event of Paris Dakar and later The Dakar has been around since the early 70’s…
No one has the right to prevent the public from using the word Dakar Rally Raid to report on, discuss, or promote the sport - especially on a website.
In particular if everywhere is clearly visible stated that we are NOT related to the organizers.

Just to emphasize again and please again:

ATTENTION - Our "Dakar Rally Raid Racing" Google+ page, website, blogs and social media presences are independent operated Off-Road Action Motor Sports fan sites and in no business relation or affiliation with ASO
This remarks are to give you thumbs up and avoid any confusion.
We are not "them", we never pretended to be "them" and we will not do so in the future.
You will find this disclaimer (or similar) at our website visible at the website footer or somewhere else VISIBLE..
We respect ASO and encourage you to visit their different locations on the world wide web.
