Re: Redbull Panda Cross at Dakar

I haven't been following Dakar this year but read about this entry and a little bit on the car. I'm glad to see they finally managed to make it to the finish line. It really is a grand effort, especially considering the limitations of the chassis they insist upon using. It's a bit disappointing to see how much effort Peugeot throws behind their factory team while these guys have had to do almost everything themselves with Fiat only providing technical know-how support rather than any real tangible contributions (from what I've read, they had to buy the engine rather than Fiat spare one out of a Doblo somewhere, and only assisted on instructions of how to mate the flywheel to the custom gearbox). Good job to these guys.

Now that's a really growly Panda. Lovely donuts. Clever name too - PanDakar.

Re: Redbull Panda Cross at Dakar

They really did a great job, now if only there was a production model with the 2lt diesel and extra lift
