Dakar 2011 is to start today in Buenos Aires, passing the obelisk at Avenue – 9 July. A total of 377 linking kilometres will bring the racers to Victoria. This stage is not timed and no points are to earn for this day. The crews can enjoy the encouragement of the crowd cheering at the road sides. According to the organisation, the Dakar is important for the for the image of Argentina as the world can have a better access to the culture, traditions and population of the country. Last year, about 4 million people were watching the event. However, safety is a concern for the organisation as the people apparently want to watch the Dakar rally too closely.
