Fernando Alonso is considering entering the Dakar Rally in the car class. He is going to test a Toyota assisted by this year's winner, Nasser Al-Attiyah. Because of the publicity it would bring, Toyota is all for it: https://us.motorsport.com/dakar/news...uture/4323160/

It looked like Ricky Brabec might be the first American to win the Dakar in any class, but his Honda motorcycle failed during the 8th stage.

The motorcycle class is by far the most difficult.



The Atlantic Magazine has published great photos from the rally again this year. For best viewing, read the “Hint” about viewing in full screen: https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/20...-rally/580603/
