South America has some INCREDIBLE geography in the interior!

Let's think back to the Camel or the Dominator series! Would a little real dirt (or clay) be so bad for the Dakar image??

The vehicles aren't really designed for muddy jungle terrain....just saying....not that it wouldn't be a cool twist to the race
