The Dakar Rally has been over for not quite a week now, and already the media arm of Robby Gordon’s off-road truck empire, Team Speed, has produced this very cool video of the final stage, which he won in the car class.
The video is mostly a wrap-up of the team’s Dakar experience, with major props going out to the team, the fans and the organizers. Robby Gordon and his bright orange beast has a huge following in South America. Maybe because he’s always flat-out and balls-to-the-wall. Maybe it’s because he builds his own beastly vehicle that sounds like no other. Whatever the reason, fans love seeing his dusty orange blur roar by, and I can’t say I blame them.
Congratulations on the stage win, Mr. Gordon. It’s a shame the mechanical issues early on took you out of contention for the win. The Gordini is fast as all get out, although the name is pretty silly.
