Dakar Stage 1 Update:
Robby Gordon has completed stage 1, and is currently in 20th place, 8 minutes, 28 seconds behind.
Both team cars are still on course and will update when they finish.
Any idea why they are slow and keep falling back...
Because he’s racing in a SXS.
try and keep up please
Nice job team speed and thanks for the updates everyone!!
