Early Paris Dakar Roadbook

Would anyone have any copies of the 1979 to 1981 Paris Dakar roadbook they'd be willing to share?
Just a page or two would do but preferably a decent resolution so it could be printed.
Many thanks in advance for any leads.

Fantastic!

The road-book format has come a long way since then.

Many thanks doyle.
I never thought to look on the dakardantan site. Might see if I can email him for hi res versions.
Thanks again.

Interesting to see that the early years of the NORRA Mexican 1000 (AKA Baja 1000) was similar hand written notes, but evolved in a different direction under SCORE, though returning to roadbook option in 2010 under NORRA again. Here are a few samples from the 1971 Mexican 1000 roadbook:

That's interesting stuff too. Thanks.
Looks way easier to understand than the Paris Dakar notes!

Not really, SCORE has always provided Course Notes (or at least in the last 12 years that I have been racing SCORE)just most people don't know about them because they have GPS files and course markers . This one is from the '05 1K, It was the first year I podiumed in a Pro Class so I kept some of the maps and notes (and they are still available thanks to BFG). I haven't raced SCORE since the reign of RN began but I know they still make them, although they don't have tulips anymore.

What I meant was SCORE now provides GPS tracks, weeks before the race. So I don't think many if any competitors use course notes to navigate in the race. Hell, hardly anyone even has a dedicated odometer at SCORE these days!

Well whatever, I didn't mean start a conversation about this I was just pointing that SCORE has always had Course Notes that look very similar to a RB. But since you brought it up, I have raced the Norra M1K, great race and super fun, but the course was marked, there was .gpx available and the RB was not of sufficient quality to be the sole means of Nav.
