Charlie and Scott were gracious enough to let me participate in the 2007 edition of their DVR training (from Bishop to Yuma). Looking back, I think I'm the only participant who hasn't gone on to an official rallye somewhere (and the truth is, I was much (much) closer to one then, than I am now, due to the growth of my young family). That being the case, DVR was an absolutely epic adventure from an "enthusiast" standpoint. Anyone who participates in a similar event will be hooked (and may well go on to more "serious" endeavors than they ever imagined). The $64,000 (okay, break-even) question is whether there's sufficient US market to sustain such a business model.

Yes, I have a Dakar problem -- that there are 50 weeks of the year without Dakar!
