You're involved in the business and promote Rally - what is the real environmental impact of something like the Dakar?

No sign of it once the "tide has come in and gone out again" I.e. after a few months of natural events, or is it truly more far reaching?

yeah for sure, unless a specific site of significance or sensitivity is actually run over, the sands of time erase a rally footprint quickly.

For Yilgarn Rallye we had to demonstrate that to the WA dept of Conservation, within 3 months its hard to see anything and 12 months almost impossible

but for Ecuador the environment and related issues was part of the mandate that put them in power so its big on their minds

I'll bet that the big-ass boat witch carries equipment from Europe to South America (and back) has more environmental impact then the entire rally.
And that boat will run with or without the Dakar.

You should do a photographic report if you can, Garry, that could be very useful for marketing purposes, and for rally in general
