Land Rover!!!!




Like I said two weeks ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not quite LandRover. I'm sure he would've used LR tail lights if that were the case.

So a SST with a mill from previous Dakars that they know will last given that the SST stuff was basically a Sprint?

Though not visible in the shot I'm assuming CTIS with an internal routing (too lazy to read rule books)?

Here's to Robbie not getting too emmotional, keeping his head screwed on, and racing a good race instead! I'm ready for the SHOW!!! And of course the"Murican Music"!

Robby's new ride is bad ass. I stopped by the shop today and got the full run down on the vehicle. He asked I kept the details quiet so I won't divulge any specifics but I can say the competition has something to be concerned with.

To see him win with a vehicle developed in less than six months would be impressive. Regardless of his end result, the overall performance should be amazing and have the competition scratching their heads.

Good thing is the ASO has been to the states and has already inspected the car so when the whining begins he should be ok.

Let's hope not, remember that Armstrong's "wins" were fraudulent. RG has proven he can get disqualified in previous additions too. Maybe you should hope he's like Greg Lemond...
