Sure having VW to put a fresh vehicle under you every day is a big asset at DAKAR...

But my thought's were more along the lines of R&D and/or bringing a last minute project to the startline.

The article says it's (still?) being built in California... prior race development, testing...? The SoCal. boys build some mean offroad/Baja racers... but DAKAR she's a whole other game.

Will make for an(other) interesting aspect to the Auto division for 2013 in any case...
