Quotes from Stage 14 of the 2012 Dakar Rally
Robby Gordon - WINNER!
"We were very fast this morning. I think we beat the second car by 1'30" over a bit more than 20 km. But I've always thought that second place is just the first among the losers. So I'm afraid we're fourth among the losers! But the best thing was having the fastest car in the rally, whatever the others say. My Hummer and Nasser's were the two fastest cars. I may come back."
We know you'll come back to the Dakar Robby... you're addicted and we are the beneficiaries of your addiction!! Gas on RG!
What's with the "may come back"? Is there some question about it?
He will come back year after year until he reaches his goal of winning the Dakar and crushing anyone who stands in his path
I for one, certainly hope they do return. Dakar would lose alot of appeal with Robby. Hardly worth following.
Congrats Robby. 5th place was not the desired outcome, but your racing was spectacular to watch and follow. RGM was well represented at the Rally this year. I'm fine with missing a few NASCAR races if the end result is a Rally like this.
Congats to the team. and just ordered my KMA. They have the phrase Aloha in Hawaii, and here at The Planet, we have KMA.
No Robby - No Dakar for me. I have plenty to do with my time and don't need to invest it in watching Girly cars driven by little men.
Its all up to the ASO now. Punish the Hummers, change the rules, change the course to WRC stages and RG please keep the Hummers home. Let them see what a turd this rally would be without you. Jump on a 24 hours of Daytona team and your fans will follow you.
right you are, gason.
He has already won the 24 hours but I would watch it for sure if he did enter again.
A top 5 is still great, even though, not the win. What a great ride. Thank you to all that were involved in keeping us up to date. I really enjoyed the last two weeks.
