What are the approximate costs to compete in the Paris-Dakar Rally?

Clarification of Question by yvrstevan-ga on 06 Nov 2006 16:38 PST
Looking for cost/budget information for a privateer (ie:
non-sponsored) individual/team to compete in the Paris-Dakar Rally in
an auto (car/truck).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dakar_Rally

Assumptions to help identify scope of costs:
- Don't include airfare to/from Paris or Dakar
- Don't include transport costs for a vehicle to start/end the Rally
- Assume renting a car and service crew is the most viable option
(ballpark costs for purchasing a vehicle could be considered)

For bonus points/tip:
- Listing of companies that provide car and service crew rentals for the Dakar
- List of "alternative" rallies of similar caliber (ie: desert,
Africa, long distance) that may be cheaper.

There is no answer at this time.

Some of what you ask is already included in the price and cannot be opted out.

To give you some idea of cost for a motorbike,have a look at this website.
