A month and a half before the start of the 2015 Dakar Rally, the 2008 Peugeot DKR replaced its original black carbon upholstery with official racing colors. With this spectacular makeover, the beastly race car is now finally ready to take on four-wheeled rivals in the most demanding endurance rally in the world. As January 4, the day of the official start of the rally, approaches, the "specials" from the Peugeot, Red Bull and Total teams have already blacked out almost all the squares on their checklists. The Peugeot 2008 DKR, on the other hand, went the other way in color! After being raced in black for seven months, this meticulous creation by French engineers has covered its skin and given itself a much more elegant look in a combination of blue, white and red, which confirms that the car will be ready from the very beginning.
This year’s World Touring Car Championship will start in Marrakesh, but a week later than originally planned. The South African street track will therefore host the first race of this year’s WTCC season. Initially, the race was announced on April 2014, but now it will be only a week before the race in Paul Richard. The first two races will therefore be close together, and the question arises as to whether the teams will have enough spare parts available in such a short time. It will definitely be a big logistical bite, just a few days from South Africa to France. 13 WTCC CALENDAR: April 20 Marrakech, Morocco April 4 Paul Ricard, France May 11 Budapest, Hungary May 25 Slovakia Ring, Slovakia May 8 Salzburg, Austria June 22 Moscow Raceway, Russia June XNUMX
