Weekend Preview: 17th & 18th January 2009

Two posts in one day! I think that’s the first time I’ve done that.. On to this weekend’s preview, which is pretty light but I decided to go ahead and write it just for the hell of it. Look out for next week’s post which will be much more interesting.

Dakar Rally
The 2009 Dakar enters its final stages and concludes on Sunday. Shock today as the runaway leader crashed out! Who’s going to win the first Dakar outside of Africa?

Andros Trophy (Rnd 5 of 7)
Isola 2000 / Alpes-Martimes, France

Slip sliding away.

New Zealand V8 Supercar (Rnd 5 of 7)
Teretonga, New Zealand

Yeah I really know nothing about this series..

Blog Notes
– These listings primarily come from Autosport magazine, so thanks to them for compiling the original list. I will supplement this with info from other sources when we get nearer the time.

– I’ve decided to not annotate some listings for the sake of brevity and not at all to disguise my lack of knowledge in some areas.

– I have a new email address for the blog: toomuchracing at gmail dot com
I thought it best to split blog traffic out of my main personal account. Actually it is registered with the UK version ‘googlemail.com’ but ‘gmail.com’ also reaches me. Our version has a different name due to a copyright dispute. Okay, I’ll see you tomorrow when I’ll be hoping McLaren release some decent photos of the new car!
