Instead of working on my car in the cold (earlier) i thought I would check up on the 2012 Dakar raid.
The efficiency of the 'German' cars and the brute power of the Hummers (which seem to be 2WD!!) is very evident!

OK so the americans didn't win the Dakar with Robby in his GM engined Hummer but I think he knows how to entertain!
