Agreed, they have 5X longer duration of other vehicles in the car class.
Shorty should have just started, tracker looks funny like he might not have, and Casey is through WP1
My bet is they are playing around/having fun today.
There is a fair chance they are out of parts, and are just looking for the finish.
That is another thing I did not consider.
Hope it is the FUN FACTOR instead.Robby has always been the showman.
Or they found a road with no speed limit took a left and headed to Mexico
Now that would be STRETCHING fuel mileage.
The last stage, the Textrons have finished the Dakar. But if he want to attempt a victory he need to come with something better, hope he build a Hummers or something like that.
Re-work the Gordini.
Both are for sale ... I think he will do something new.
Hummer has had more stage wins than Gordini and Textron combined. So, long as there is going to be a speed limitation on the Textron racing in the cars class, it has no chance. Even with a flawless run.
25 min or so and the final, 10 or so fastest, cars will be hitting WP1 so we shall see then what the day looks like.
