There’s a guy playing the “Virtual Dakar Race” in a purple car, who does not say where he is from, and calls himself “Junkie”.

It would surprise me a little if it was our Junkie as I would have thought that he would be on a bike and also would have said that he was an American. Just curious, is it you Junkie?

BTW he not doing too bad in 1824 position over all out of some 130,000 players.

Are there any others here playing the game?

Sainz has put his car on it's roof on the 11 th stage and has lost a lot of time.
Al-Attiyah must try to take advantage of this because it won't be too long before team orders come into play like it did last year. My feeling is that the team would favour Sainz though.

Just noticed that there is a difference between the spelling of Jumkie and Junkie. Guess it is'nt our Jumkie. Sorry my bad. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif[/img]

Not exactly, and object hit his roof and teared off one of the air cooling intakes, hope there's no damage to the engine. He lost 5 min, so he's now just 5 min ahead of Al Attiyah.

In bikes, Frans Verhoeven won the stage, Despres keeps on cruising to an easy Dakar win.

Yea, I also battled the first few stages. The game updates every 10 minutes. Hit the timer button on the top right hand corner or hit refresh every 10 min to see any progress. Hope that helps. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

I noticed that to Jumk. Not only dose south America have them, one has been through hundred years drought. Geonerd, I will admit that I to forgot about this when I first heard about the switch from Africa.

Sainz won today's stage [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]
Al Attiyah came just one minute behind so with 2 stages left it's still very close, Sainz only leads by 5:30. Miller is pretty much out, being half an hour behind them.

Despres keeps on leading comfortably in bikes.
