Hoping like Jen said its a rumour to drum up some more sign-up's.

They had it tough last year because 38 of the 78 teams that signed up pulled out with the "trouble" in North Africa so the rally was cancelled (as I'm sure you know). They (the organisation) have done a lot this year to re-assure people it is safe - they recently did a trip to Mauritania and have been given assurances etc.

As stated above, it must be an arm and a leg to run it so if there aren't enough people signed up.......

It will be desperately sad if its coming to an end, at least its one of the last (is it THE last only one?) that actually goes to Dakar, doesn't the Intercontinental go to Dakar?
