Robby Gordon's latest press release:

El Salvador, Chile (January 17, 2014) – Robby Gordon’s 10th attempt at Dakar Rally glory has come to an end in the sand dunes of Chile.

ROBBY GORDON HAS RUN OUT OF TIME

Robby Gordon team has notified us that they have officially ran out of time. Stay tuned for details

LATEST: Robby Gordon NOT out

- Toyo Tires

Robby's team have stated that there is not an engine problem with the car so they will not need to replace it and therefore be forced to withdraw. There was a fuelling problem and now Robby has consulted with the ASO and under the rules he can continue with the rally even though he had to leave the stage after starting. He may incur a time penalty but given he cannot race for a position this is irrelevant. Reaching the finish and getting the chance to shine in the final stages is much more important.

Stage 10: Robby On His Own

- Toyo Tires

Today's stage is another long one, almost 400 miles (631km), and Robby is the sole racer from Team Toyo.  BJ made the decision to not start this morning after a massive hole was discovered in the fuel cell end of day yesterday.  Of course it was a tough decision to not continue but also an easy one when he considered the risks and his family.  You can read more on his Instagram post.
