RedBull really must have cut back on Carlos' budget this year!????

The Citröen ZX Rallye Raid's with Lartigue, Vatanen and Waldegard behind the steering wheel was kick-ass in it's day... not much - not even the Mitsu T3's - got close to them, when Jean Todt (Puegeot) passed over the batton to Guy Freqelin at Citröen the "red tide" went from strength to strength.

Gordini

I wonder if RG will have a new line of Gordini watches to sell?

I like this one, which could run with the group B rally cars on the straights, but I guess you can only have one engine now?!

RG is letting some teaser previews out on the web...






Over at RDC and planet.robby there are some sneak previews that were put up on facebook of the rear cowling of the 2014 Dakar spec HST Gordini...

Looks like the the paint will still be wet in January...

Your right, at this rate they will be painting on the trip down. When is the official final chance for scrutineering, I've got to think that is coming rapidly, or do they do everything just before the race? Because god knows they will be all over anything "Rubby" builds with the finest tooth comb.

They were all over his "redneck supercharger"...
I wonder how the scrutineers will react over a two-pack "general lee" paint job?

Paint?? This thing will be wrapped for sure.
He better pass inspection otherwise the car category will be missing some spice.
