Did Robby start???tacker keeps changing his start time
I see that he is through WP2 so I would say yes
He got a late start
IMO ... in Racing they add a percentage of weight to offset any advantage you may have. Percentage and it starts out in small increments . If you look at the speed percentage that they imposed it is truly unfair . It’s all math but I would agree with RG . The ASO figured out that the XX would be competitive with the cars and change the rules.

The whole race is a crustaceanal (that's not a word Mike) exoskeleton of its former self. The last real rally I can recall was when Robby Gordon serviced the vehicle of his female team members vehicle.....gone From Africa the downward spiral began and now ...with the limited terrain of this years gone is the unreal and fantastic scenery of the vehicles battling in Gods 3 dimensional coloring book. All the hub ub aside I hope there's a stage up and coming we crush.
Roddy thru wp1
GR thru WP-2. Looks like he's picking them off today.
