As of 12-4-12, there has been NO ANNOUNCEMENT from RGM about it's plans for the upcoming 2013 Dakar Rally. The entry list at Dakar.com is NOT the final entry list. With the rally starting in Peru ( instead of Argentina ), it's almost 3,000 miles closer than past rallies for shipping the vehicles. I believe we should hear something official very soon. Keep in mind some of Robby's 2012 Dakar plans didn't take shape until late November / early December 2011.
I agree with WJM,. it is like they say, good news travels slow and bad news travels fast, you need to have controversy and why not make a big thing out of it, hey you bet I am going to follow to see what happens next so I will tell a friend and the friend will tell a friend. I sure have seen alot new members on Planet
Hello again Franco, its about time you showed up! WJM is right, ASO needs Robby for the TV show, but that is all they want him for.
I think the "Villian" role as value, too.
the 2 main pre-dakar hype stories have been Nasser Al-Attiyah's new ride & "Why isn't Robby on the entry list?" - People aren't getting jazzed about Peterhensel.
There should be more Buzz around Nasser's new ride - I think I would rather drive one of the minis....
I think he has ADHD, he can't stay put. I doubt he is neglecting things.

I hope for the best. This will be my third round of Robby and Dakar.....one more thing, it doesn't matter what the ASO does towards Robby in Dakar. What Robby does towards the ASO is important in keeping them honest. They may not like it, but Robby keeps chewing away at their heels and it pisses them off. That part plus his raw will to win at any cost produces an epic show....IMO
