well this looks a lot more like the bugly then the concept art
the article doesn't say much but has these photos and the concept art
The concept art had the rugged tough look of a SCORE Trophy Truck.... but this (yeah it's similar underneath to the Bugly I am assuming).
If this is what Jeffries and Baldwin & Co are running... I'm baptising them to "Eric & BJ's Golf Carts" oser
Something about the nose of that car looks strangly familiar.
Just before the 2014 Dakar Rally that starts in January, 2014, X-raid succeeded in adding another major asset to its driver line-up: With Qatars Nasser Al-Attiyah, the German team successfully signed the experienced and extremely fast 2011 Dakar winner. Together with his long-term co-driver, Spaniard Lucas Cruz, Al-Attiyah will contest the event with a Mini All4 Racing......

We have a winner!!
What the heck!! Just give up the bugly and get in a countryman?? Doesn't he know he could have had one of those long ago.
God damnit. Don't remind me of that. I was so successfull surpressing that memory. :huh
I don't know if there's a car-thread, so I post it here:
Nasser Al Attiyah is back with the X-Raid-Team. Will there be even the slightest competition this year? :
Not entirely true... He burnt some bridges when he left BMW X-raid to take a seat at VW... then when the VW gig closed down, all the seats at (the one factory team left) Mini/X-Raid were filled...
Hence the 11th hour deal with Flash Gordon for 2012 in the Hummer, then the Bugly project last 2013 edition with el-matador (which now seems like it's stillborn, seeing as Carlos has taken his Red Bull coupons over to Speedy Gauche and SMG ). Seems like BJ and Eric have inherited the bugly technology into the Jeffries Golf Carts...
So now the Qatari Quid feels he needs a full spec T1 4WD to win eh? (after trying the 2WD formula?)... wonder if he looked at buying a Hilux from the Saffer's too?
I reckon he'd be paying top dollar for his Mini spot... and wonder where (he) thinks he falls in the team order/strategy along with Perfecthansel and nani and the other Mini-guns...?
The X-Raid team come with a proven package and the biggest armada of guns again this year it seems...?
He gets anywhere near Peter and his mini will be set to drop a cylinder. He's proven that he's not a team player.
They'll make him be one.
The latest contender in the 2WD war... from the classes (2nd) most infamous protagonist.
It is interesting to see Quinn Cody as B.J. Baldwin's navigator.
It's actually a continuation of a trend... When RG decided to do his "own" thing at dakar with the Hummer way back when, he secured the services of US SCORE/Baja riders with Dakar/navigation experience. ie. guys with a feeling for the GPS/roadbook based navigation and familiarity with the US offroad racing style approach (read balls out) that the Gordon/Hummer team take to the crap shoot.
Andy Grider, Kellon Welch and Johnny Campbell have all fit into the mould nicely...
It makes ense that BJ might look for the same qualities when he drew up a short list for his "co-dawg"...
I could never imagine one of the US racers coersing a pro "euro co-pilot" - the likes of Jean Paul Cottet, Timo Gottschalk or Tina Thörner to jump in the panic seat of one of the "Baja loons"... Nasser scared the shit out of his share of co-drivers... and that was before he got his hands on the Hummer or Buglies with the big wheel travel figures!
interesting yes, but to me also sad that he was unable to secure a ride and backing for Dakar.
The EVR rigs pack some punch with the Vette LS7 motors
