I talked to Kevin Heath at the Central Europe in '08, which was even more WRC-ey than Argentina; he said they had no chance against the VWs and other 4x4s when it came to powering out of tight corners. Gordon was probably hoping for even more open desert stages than they had this year. For a Argentina/Chile Dakar, he needs a 4x4.
