Oh well, then you only need the accreditation fee, about $4000 and any personal costs like flights etc. Definitely doable and 100% worth it. I will be working on it this year to try and get there for 2014, but we'll see.

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...

Yah, its good, i just thought it was cool how they were getting the mileage out of them, nowadays. Engines are getting better!

The way this is going, by next Dakar they will factor in 1000th of the second ala F1... That's tight competition over thousands of kms!
