with the name recognition that "Dakar" has why would you want to change the name?

I guess because it is now Argentina to Chile and not Paris to Dakar. Could be it is being sponsored by BMW. And why don't we have Paris to Dakar anymore? Because it is to dangerous for us westerners.

Course is awesome though.
