And the new owner of the Hummers:

"Not content with doing big things in WRC 2, Yazeed Al-Rajhi has revealed plans to contest next years Dakar Rally and hes turned to event regular Robby Gordon for advice, not to mention a brace of Hummer H3s."

"Of his Dakar bid, Al-Rajhi said: Im not in the habit of losing my time or wasting my energy. My objective is to win the Dakar. Im fully aware that it is an ambitious objective, and that to be playing up front in the beginning will not be easy, but it is a project to be built on over the years. During the first year we will be there to learn. But I truly hope the clinch the laurels one day.

"Al-Rajhi will contest four cross-country events in 2013: the Hail Rally in Saudi Arabia, the Sealine Cross Country in Qatar, the Silk Way Rally in Russia and The Rally of Pharaohs in Egypt."

And a couple of images from Planet Robby:

So then is it correct to assume that Gordon's comment at the end of the Dakar that he would be coming back to race in 2014 was an impulsive one, and that he won't be showing up with another type of vehicle?
