Now terrorism spreads also to motor sports. The legendary desert race Paris-Dakar “fails because of fear of terror! A dream bursts for many participants is burst a big dream with this rejection. Once they wanted to drive through the stunning landscape. But the fear of terrorist attacks had burst him just sweltering heat, dunes, sand and dust. For many riders, a hard time up breaks now. Speaking candidly Ben Silbermann told us the story. They need to process the cancellation and are sad because they can not take part in the Dakar rally. On the other hand, they must repay the sponsorship money or are facing financial problems, because many of them even have financed. And why? To because of stupid people who think their political goals through terrorist attacks.
Of course, going on driver safety, but should you cancel really a whole sporting event, only due to a terror warning? I say-no! In my opinion the sport connects people only. He succeeds in countries and Cultures merge and teach the people to fight for their goals. Sport is addictive, but in a positive way. Therefore, I find it very regrettable that the Dakar rally has been cancelled. Terrorists make for sad rally novelty the way should result in 2008 according to Dakar boss Etienne Lavigne the Dakar triumph by an ocean of sand”. He said it at the official presentation of the route, but then something occurred, which probably never expected to see the complete cancellation of the Dakar rally tour founder Thierry Sabine! That has never been there! Since 1979, the desert rally will be”discharged, but completely she never failed. Only a few stages or sections have failed so far. Who remembers is not had to be airlifted to the expensive airlift in the year 2000, when due to terror warnings in Niger, all go to Libya? Now the Organizer ASO announced on January 4, 2008, only shortly before the scheduled start, that you canceled the entire rally Dakar for safety reasons.
There a total of 8 of the 15 stages through Mauritania should lead, an alternative route was not possible and so it came to this drastic solution. Dreams burst with the cancellation is not only lost money and time, but also a dream burst. Many riders wanted to just drive through the magnificent and impressive landscape and just feel the spirit of the desert rally. That’s why I say that we should fight for our dreams and goals and also not people should shy away, wishing something bad to us.
