Want REAL ENDURANCE? Forget Le Mans. How about ripping across the worst terrain in Africa for three weeks straight? Add to that a MAD fight for the Car Class victory - complete with blocking, cheating, leaping in front of the opposing team's cars and chucking your helmet at them, and other "team tactics". This year, will any other race top the Paris Dakar? We doubt it.
