The 2013 Dakar Rally is underway, Stage 1: Lima – Pisco

Liaison sections: 250 km,
Special stage: 13 km

Setting the scene

It won’t be long before competitors will be singled out, but for the moment, the mini special stage organised on the outskirts of Pisco will principally be used to divide up the drivers into categories according to their level, who in turn will reassemble during the rally. the initial stage won’t be as stiff as the drink that made the region famous, but the picture postcard landscape is especially appealing.

The concentration required over the several timed kilometres will still allow the competitors to admire the scenery. nevertheless, the light-hearted attitude and relaxed driving style adopted by the competitors during this first day must not mislead them: the Dakar has really begun.

At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone. And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.
