ther is no way possible it would come to Australia ,as big as Australia is ,all land is either owned or governed by one body or another . it is impossible to get stage distances long enough to be worhty of calling the race 'Dakar ".
the Australian Safari struggles to get any stages long enough to test anyones endurance out . they have to have 2 or 3 stages a day to get enough km's as competitive.
the Dakar usually only has 1 stage a day ,300 -600 km .
plus it would cost the Euro's a packet to get them and all their equipment here.
they have no concern for other nationalities if they want to do the Dakar ,but i could'nt see them rushing to get to Australia.
