Audio of Robby Gordon on the Stage 2 penalty.

Gordon also expressed frustration during the NBC sports US broadcast on 01.06.2016 about Team Peugeot’s speed and power at high altitude during stage 4. Claiming the Peugeot’s diesels couldn’t be a production engine and making a bold statement that he may not return to Dakar in 2017. Most of this may have just been “red mist” heat of competition speak, but it certainly will continue to be an uphill battle for the Dakar underdog. It’s unlikely Peugeot is doing any rule breaking, their unfair advantage is probably due to a huge budget, teams of engineers and 4 top level drivers.
