THREE race crews with links to South Africa started the second-last stage of the two-week Dakar rally in the elite top 10. They are the teams of Toyota, Ford and Broadlink KTM. The rally ends tomorrow night. This is when a cool-headed co-driver has to calm things in the cabin. Unlike other famous rallies, like the Baja 1 000, racers in the Dakar do not know the day’s routes. The means the co-driver’s ability to read a map is as important to win a Dakar as is the driver’s ability to read the route surface.
