Dakar-bound

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Motorsport -

A RECORD num­ber of Aus­tralians will com­pete in the Dakar Rally in South Amer­ica in Jan­uary. The con­tin­gent is led by our most suc­cess­ful Dakar com­peti­tors, Bruce Gar­land and Harry Suzuki, who fin­ished 11th in 2009. The Syd­ney-based team this week loaded their Isuzu D-Max on to a ship bound for Buenos Aires. They will be joined in the auto di­vi­sion by Ge­of­frey Ol­holm and Steve Ri­ley in a BMW-pow­ered Rally Raid spe­cial. There will also be six com­peti­tors in the mo­tor­cy­cle cat­e­gory, led by Dakar vet­eran Simon Pavey.
