It is very sad they have had to cancel one of the most interesting and challenging motorsport events in the world the Dakar.
The Dakar has always fascinated me since I can remember. I have always held a little dream behind that one day I might take part.
As that is probably unlikely I make do with watching it on Eurosport. This year due to security concerns though there will be no Dakar.
It was interesting how I found that out, @jreesnc twittered to @robbygordon and I thought oooh a driver in the dakar, hit the website and saw the announcement.
