Wifi isn't too hard if you can upload on the road, everywhere in Argentina and Chile has wifi in Service Stations and in lots of Cafes - free wifi is easy to find. But it's slow and you only get to use it if you get to stop for a while on the way. The big issue is the cost to be in the bivvy. Even for you to go as a team member would cost the Freedom Rally guys another $4000. They might already have a car on the assistance route so that might not be a big issue for you to overcome. Worth chasing.
Best thing I ever did was cover that race on the ground. Not being there brings me to tears nowadays though, so be warned!

Actually there is no [time] penalty for dropping out of Marathon and into the 'regular' SP class if you do decide to change an engine after all...

The problem is, any spare engine has to be presented at scrutineering (I imagine to stop people changing their 450cc for a 530cc that just happens to be in the back of the truck, ahem) and if you present a spare engine at scrutineering, then you are technically not allowed in Marathon.

Of course there is nothing to stop a Marathon rider changing their engine during the event with one from another bike/team, as that engine would have already been scrutineered/marked/approved at the beginning, they would just move to the SP class instead.

Hope that clarifies...

Yes it would be as a team member. We have a truck and motorhome, so lots of room.
