Dakar series for Direct TV users.
I just discovered that the Dakar racers are at it in spite of the cancellation of this years Africa race. The Dakar Series is now being run on Direct TV channel T101. I accidently ran into it searching for HD channels on my new TV and HD satellite setup.
They are running in Central Europe, Romania etc.. Just recorded Day 5.
Looks like they are running on what would typically be World Rally type courses, very rough, a lot of mud and some snow. The vehicles were set up for the African areas, so the bigger cars such as Robby Gordon's Hummers are at a disadvantage, but they are pressing on.
At least all the prep for a big race this year was not a total loss.
I don't know if it is being broadcast on any other source.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
