Is There A Silver Lining?

We first got a sense that something was up last week during Sebastien Ogier’s first test with the Citroen World Rally Team.

No Country for Old Men? Don’t Tell “El Matador”!

On paper, the Dakar Rally should be a young man’s game. Arguably the most grueling motorsport event on the planet, the 40th edition of the Dakar featured 14 stages stretching almost 9,000km.
