Video update from Dakar 2013 Rally day Two – Giniel De Villiers talks about the Dakar Rally and some of the obstacles of the race. On day two they have missed one of the way-points and had to search for it. This however did not affect there position in the Dakar 2013 Rally as they have remained in the top 3 positions on day two of the Dakar Rally 2013.
Being from South Africa we would have expect that the heat will not be a problem for the South African Toyota Hilux 2013 Dakar team, but it seems like it is very hot at the moment in Peru, South America and it is effecting the riders.
