I know it's going to be a nightmare, but that's how it has to be. *IF* I go I will have certain duties that will require me to be near the racers at the end of the day. There are "support" crews for privateers who have not paid the 8500 euros and follow the race independently. I know of a certain example last year when someone did it with 2000 euros.
If we could hire a car from BA to drop it off in Lima and there were 3 or 4 of us it could be even less per person. Are there others who would be interested in that?
