    I'm so glad this is happening two years in a row in my Country!!!

    I like this extreme Rally ! I follow it every year You're lucky to be there !

    This edition is really interesting, the usual VW/Mitsu duel is replaced by the VW/BMW duel. I would like to see a 2nd win of the VW team

    Do you know why Robbie is sponsored by Traxxas ?

    No, I don't... Perhaps they can give me a few behind the scene tickets and I can find out... I'm a such good customer...

    Another pic from behind... Maybe PeterV can throw some light about this...



    It's a shame that 99.9% of those guys over there don't know what Traxxas is...

    I would do anything to meet him in person and get inside the Hummer for a wild ride!!!

    Just found this thread!! I'm watching the Dakar everyday. Robby Gordon is an amazing driver. I watched a couple of vids, and I'm not certain on this, but didn't Gordon win a CORR series sponsered by Traxxas? There is a Video of him working with the Traxxas guys and a load of Slashes with some VIPS. I think he has their name on his Hummer because he won this CORR series.

    I might be wrong though.

    I'm happy that our Country once again is the place for this event! Wish next year I get a PM with an invitation to meet the crew, they have to met THE biggest fan in South America.
