Passion is the big one that motivates us to do this sort of thing. We just fucking love it. But with too much passion, too much focus, it ceases to fun. And, in my experience, it eliminates that variable that makes it possible to win. And if you do luck into the win, it lacks the joy it should have brought.

I really hope that, like him playing with the local kids and the rc car, he just goes out and has fun with it.
Great commentary, Drif.

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