    It's 'branding' nowadays, nothing to do with the actual location.

    Much shorter this year, all in one country and mostly in the dunes - it can never be called easy but it's not the beast it once was.

    Don't know how it compares to the older ones as I do not have the comparative stage and total miles in hand but it should be closer to navigation and survival of the man and the machine than a sprint rally.

    They should bring back the trans-Australia rally.

    As tough as the Dakar, without the gun crazies.
