There is no doubt that he win at least several stages.

Carlos and Nasser are not contenders with the Jefferies cars. They are already on borrowed time.

Still not what you'd call stellar (or even mature) behavior, but not as bad as some of the NASCAR helmet throwing at other passing cars or other drivers.

The buggies haven't been really tested. That's gonna cost them later on, surely.

2nd on stage, 13th overall, and 46.47 behind leaders. Huge spread in the top 10 after only 3 days. Better starting position tomorrow.

He restarted without air filter (and intercooler) but finished the special on his own steam. It was a special Special Stage in the South of Portugal, very very tight, trucks were not doing this special so Vatanen was without assistance and had a boat to catch for Africa .

I have a pic somewhere and a few seconds of footage from the episode - I must dig that before I loose it.

IIRC he was towed out of the stream by another competitor (no penalty involved in that) but he indeed got some hours penalty on that stage (I never knew if it was because we helped him out). A few days later his Touareg burnt to pieces (not my fault - my friends all teased me because of that) . Ari Vatanen got my phone number through VW Portugal and we called me to personlly thank me - imagine my face when I got that phone call

Man, time flies. That high point, followed by Elmer's low point a few days later.

Oh, and it seems this should be results for this stage, not overall results as of this point.

Heh, camera angle makes it look like Robby's crew are all under 4ft tall.

Stage 3 Highlight!- RG Carries Parts For JC
Robby Gordon picked up parts for Johnny Campbell's bike before the HUMMER started todays special. Robby found Johnny and his bike, turned around and dropped the necessary parts to Campbell. That's what we call USA teamwork. Tune in tonight on NBC Sports (11:00 & 11:30 PST) to hear Robby talk about it- CHECK LOCAL LISTINGS
