    I've been trying to explain to some idiot on another forum why we won't see a Dakar type race on continental US soil... he thinks it's because of environmentalists. I think he blames everything on "Enviro Whacko's" (sic).
    Really? These are normally only 1-2 days, but run all over the US

    Yep, I knew there was still some rallying (?) going on in the US, though I must say I wasn't aware that they were allowing cars and motorcycles in the same event, but it still pales in comparison to a Dakar type event...teams, size, length, terrain etc. Which is not to say the NASA stuff isn't cool, it is. But it ain't Dakar, and I don't think we'll see something on that scale in the continental US. You need 3rd world countries to get away with that kind of shenanigans.

    True. Since its hard to televise and spectate, then the audience is a smaller group. So there's no money for it, except through enthusiasts.
