Message from Johnny Campbell AKA "The Right Seat"

Hi All! Stage 1 update from the Right seat! The stage went well, both Robby and I clicked in the Speed Energy Gordini. We took off from the heart of Buenos Aires on a 140k liaison lined with energetic fans. The Special Started on a hard packed auto cross course and quickly jumped into narrow, long straight two tracks, blind rises, ditches lining the entire 170km route. Reaching speeds up to 125 mph, RG raced the day conservatively, Making no mistakes and managing the equipment for the first special of the 9000k rally. The Speed Energy Duo planned a podium position in 3rd place, only 1 min from the fast time of the day. Now off on a 500k plus liaison to Villa Carlos Paz bivouac for an early evening arrival. Tomorrow's stage will guarantee change some positions as the 2015 Dakar Rally puts competitors to the test with a 518km special. Love to all, 11-Time

The boys went pedal to the metal at the Dakar Rally today and you can expect the same everyday. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152608749662444 Quick clip of Robby Gordon during Stage 1 of the 2015 Dakar Rally
