Dakar : Team Dakar USA
Transcript from Robby Gordon phone call following the Second Special
“I'm on a ferry crossing over from Europe to Africa. All systems with the H3 are good. The truck is performing flawlessly.
The roads on the stage today were tight and narrow.
The smaller vehicles definitely have had an advantage. Stage one and two have been more like a World Rally race but that's going to change when we get to the full throttle terrain in Africa. We came to Dakar knowing this race is neither won nor lost in Europe.
We are gauging our performance off Stephane Peterhansel who has won this event the past two years. Right now we are a minute and forty two seconds back of him and by no means out of this race. As long as we are in touch with the leaders we are going to have a shot. Right now we are just plugging along with no real dramas.”
