I must have missed it, so RG is in the Dakar? Info on what he's driving would be nice to know as well.

I just looked at the FB page. A post from Planet Robby mentions that the Race Vehicle photos will be shown the first of December.

I knew he couldn't stay away.

It wouldn't be the same without him. All the new motorcycles, teams, riders, and now a new Robby Mobile designed for the Dakar. Oh, this is going to be a good January. Must schedule vacation now so I don't get fired for spending too much time on the net.

I've seen shots of a lot of the support trucks, and I have to admit this looks really well thought out from what i can see. I wonder if it's 4x4? Worst case scenario, maybe he could run it in the truck class...

It will be interesting to see what body style he's going with. It almost looks like a Durango, though it could be the Ram - nnd that's the smaller Hemi if I recall... Though having just traded one in, it's got plenty of power - I hope he adds a few extra fuel cells or he'll be in Helder's territory.

Wonder if he got tired of GM, or it trying to run a dead brand just wasn't wotking.



Mini's BEWARE!

Unless this becomes some crazy set of over-expectations... (if Coma and Peterhansel blow everything by running off with the lead on Day one) This is going to be one heck of a race to watch. There's certainly enough build-up this year to make me consider buying into some way to DVR coverage from S.A.

Jenny, I'll PM you...

Who's Who

Starting to get itchy for January, but I have missed any list of US rider's besides Kurt C and Kevin M. Any other?
Now Robby G and the 4 manufacturers.
Seems like a real race now.
