Budapest Bamako Rally

Oh man, this looks like so much fun. I have to try this one day. 

The Budapest-Bamako is a low-budget version of the Dakar Rally and goes from Budapest, Hungary to Bamako, Mali through the Sahara. It passes through Hungary, Austria (or Slovenia), Italy, France, Spain, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania and Mali. The Budapest-Bamako was inspired by the Paris Dakar Rally. It promises a sense of adventure and the romance of Africa, much like the Paris-Dakar did in its early days. There are no entry restrictions. As long as a vehicle is street legal, it can join the event. The B2 also raises money and supplies for local communities and charities in Mali.
Check out this 45 minute documentary.

For more info and to sign up, check out their website BudapestBamako.org. However, you can only sign up if you include me on the team.
