Dakar Rally’s television coverage alluded to a wreck that forced American racing legend Robby Gordon to withdraw from the race, but offered few details. Now we know why: the oops in question was quite boneheaded, involving one of Gordon’s support vehicles and some dangerous shenanigans on the highway.
The high-flying two-wheeling Stadium Super Trucks are racing all weekend in Gold Coast, Australia and there have already been enough crashes for an awesome highlight reel.
What’s the difference between a crash and a stunt? ‘Round here we say; “landing on your wheels, bro!” Here’s how Robby Gordon brought the noise to the Estate Of Lord March at the 2015 Goodwood Festival Of Speed.
Everybody’s favorite wrecking ball racer Robby Gordon is on a roll. Wielding his superfast scratch-built HST Gordini he stomped the NORRA Mexican 1000 vintage off-road race last month, and just smoked everybody at the Dos Mares 500 on his way home.
The NORRA Mexican 1000's been called "a conga line down the Baja peninsula." It's also one of the only events you see vintage, historic, and other wacky off-road vehicles really racing. Now Robby Gordon's bringing in a Pro Unlimited class, and I fear organizers made a deal with the devil in exchange for TV time.
Stadium Super Trucks is, by far and away, the perfect race series for someone who cares for nothing about racing. Do you really care which driver hates which? No. Do you really care whose dad was whose? No. Do you even care who wins? Not really. But it's loud, it's fast, it's slidey, and, oh yeah, SWEET JUMPS.
When the last stage of the 2015 Dakar Rally was cut down to a short off-road sprint due to weather, it was finally Robby Gordon's time to shine. Hear what his team had to say at the end of the epic rally, and try to hang on to your lunch through these cockpit-view clips from the last bit of the race.
Ever feel as if you need more suspension travel? Say, your roads are rough, or you just want to climb stuff? Take a look at the suspension setup on the HST Gordini, the race truck Robby Gordon custom-built for the car category at Dakar. Here's Robby's celebration after winning the final stage of Dakar.

The look of off-road racing buggies hasn't change much in twenty five years, as it? Guess you don't see purple-&-orange on white too often anymore though. Here's Robby Gordon running his BF Goodrich rig at the 1990 Baja 1000. [Pascal Rondeau/Getty Images]
Robby Gordon and his custom-build race truck with the face of a Hummer and ass of a Ford Raptor were spotted testing in Parker, Arizona today making test runs for the 2015 Dakar Rally next January.
