Sure he's way gnarly driving, his show is THE best. Pitching it sideways on asphalt on a transfer, launching, driving like Robbie does, it's what fans love to see.
I agree with this. He just also gives the crowd an underdog to root for - the Hummer versus the cocky Mini-brigade. Along with his gung-ho, we're-here-to-boogy way of doing things it makes him a real treat to follow in Dakar.
The car competition surely wouldn't be half as interesting without him. I for one probably wouldn't be watching it anymore.
