2016 Dakar in Buenos Aires

On Jan 1st I went to Tecnopolis on the edge of the city of Buenos Aires to see the vehicles that were being prepared for the Dakar rally.

Unfortunately they were being kept behind a tall fence making it impossible for the common folk to get a closer look at the machines.

Things got more interesting in the area reserved for the crews and support vehicles where I got closer to most of the trucks ans also managed to speak with the maintenance crews.

Most of the European truck manufacturers were represented along with Russians and Japanese, but I noticed very little north American presence.
