Race to Dakar by julwis on 8 January 2007 11:10pm
 
Finally got to see Race to Dakar, which is the follow up (of sorts) to Long Way Round. I really enjoyed this series too, and it provided a great insight into the Paris-Dakar rally, which Michael encountered in Sahara.

The motorcyclist's name was Elmer Symons, aged 29.

Martin, why don't you express your sentiments to his family and friends?
You stupid stupid boy.

If you liked "Race to Dakar" you may also like a film called, "Dust to Glory" about the Baja 1000. It might not be as personal but it's still pretty cool.

That's 49 lives the event has claimed now. I think they really should look at the safety aspects, that's a massive death toll.

johnny.

dont be full of shit. i called him stupid for a reason. he messed up and payed the ultimate penalty for what cause?

to destroy the sahara on a whim/adventure. sounds like a bad reason to me.

A death in an event like this is no less tragic than any other. There are many reasons to object to an event like this...vehicle emissions, damage to the desert lands, chance of death and others.

Yeah, I object to rich guys playing with our world like that, but I still like to watch it! I prefer a rally where more mileage can be shown. Anytime I've driven like that I've broken my truck or had to walk miles to get help to pull it out.
