Yes , they should have entered the Dakar rally in January 2022!Maybe 2023? That would be a decent proving ground!

That would be entertaining if they did, although I'm not so sure how competitive the Grenadier would be, there's some speedy competition for that event. 

What I'm really hoping is that they start sponsoring extreme challenges akin to the Camel Trophy etc. Sir Jim loves getting out there and doing stuff so and I can't imagine a better way to showcase the 'new tough' off roader to the world.

As we've discussed before, wet grass and a gravel road don't really showcase the off-road chops of a vehicle.

The driver on my 2B experience said they're looking at entering the Paris Dakar in the future with a production grenadier. So I'd say its probably on the cards. They've done more than many OEMs have already, seeing as they're still in prototype phases
