This is all I found so far;

Exactly where and when will be held the first timed section of the race?
Pozo In the Santo area, 28 kilometers south of Pisco. The stretch is scarce 13 competitive kilometers and will run around the bivouac (camp). It is estimated that the first driver will make the trip at 11: 40 am.

But, hell who knows I've flubbed my nav a few times already today

We still don't know for sure. The Dakar site still hasn't updated fully to the Peru timezone.
The Dakar site shows competitors will go on the podium between 08:00 AM and 1:30 PM for the grand start.

The Spectator's pamphlet estimates 11:40 AM (Peru, GMT-5).

The special is located just past Pisco, ~250 km from Lima, which Google estimates as a 3 hour drive so 11:40 may be about right.

What time zone is master Doyle in anyway? I always get confused because he never sleeps

They will anounce the start times at the briefing of course, and after that it likely that they will put it up? I heard on Peru tv that they would be starting around 8 am tomorrow, but that was a week ago when i was recovering after the operation so maybe it was just a morphine dream....

If things run as advertised we have a little over 16 hours to wait for the start of the special.

Local time in Peru
