This topic is being discussed on the racing thread ( lack of things to discuss on the rest day until the ASO changes everyone's position)
What I would like to know from those who have the experience is some of the REAL costs for doing Dakar from North America. I want to know the obvious expenses ( registration etc.) and the not so obvious expenses the ones that you didn't expect or anticipate.
I would like to do my own show use my support people and support equipment. I have spent years running the numbers in my head , it is now time to get serious and I would like to plan for 2014 or 2015.
If there is a thread that already covers this , I apologize for wasting your time , please supply the link if you have it...
I appreciate any assistance any of you are able to share.
