It's like moving the 24 hours of Le Mans to Magny-cours...

It's cool they were able to continue the Dakar using another continent, but I do hope it will be able to go back to africa.
A bit like the Monaco F1 GP not in Monaco...

I like that idea, "Dakar Series" anywhere in the world at competitive (local currency) prices to entice local riders in the type of events with long 1,000+kms stages, but the MOTHER EVENT "Dakar Rally" in Africa.

2011 starting in Dakar heading east then south to Cape Town with a finish at the southern tip of Africa will definitely get my vote, as opposed to replicating existing events such as Tunisia, Egypt or Patagonia Atacama.

even though I consider retiring from rally racing end of 2010, I'd do it.

IMO that makes the most sence. I would think that if the ASO are going to make the change (again) they would want it to start in France or Spain and take a short ferry trip in to North Africa. If they were going to start in Dakar and go east or south it would still be very hard on the ASO and they may as well stay in South America.
