DAKAR 2019 LIVE!

DAKAR 2019 NEWS 

Russians 86'd OUT OF THE DAKAR RALLY!

Russian Kamaz driver Andrey Karginov was disqualified from the 2019 Dakar Rally after an incident with a spectator on the fifth stage of the marathon.

A 60-year-old South African man, stood within a group of five outside one of the stage's designated spectator zones, was hit by Russian Karginov's truck, which drove over his left leg with its left rear wheel. A statement from rally organisers ASO said the spectator sustained a broken femur and was swiftly transported to a hospital in Arequipa. 

“The competitor was excluded from the rally by the jury of commissioners for not stopping to attend the injured spectator,” the statement also said. 

Russian Karginov, whose crew is made up of mechanic Igor Leonov and navigator Andrey Mokeev, won the Dakar Rally in the truck class in 2014. He sat out the event last year, competing in the Africa Eco Race instead, but was brought back into Kamaz's four-truck line-up for the 2019 Dakar. Karginov won two of the five stages of the current event, and was sat in third place overall behind fellow Kamaz drivers Eduard Nikolaev and Dmitry Sotnikov. Kamaz team boss Vladimir Chagin, himself a seven-time Dakar winner, described the decision to exclude Karginov as “very harsh". He said the driver was not aware he had hit a spectator until after arriving to the Arequipa bivouac at the conclusion of the stage. “There's a lot spectators on the route, and in the most difficult parts there's always particularly many of them, spread out in various groups,” Chagin said. “As he [Karginov] was driving up one of the ascents, there was a group of five spectators in the path of the truck. Four managed to clear off but one tripped in the sand and his leg was caught under the rear wheel of the truck. “Andrey naturally didn't see this - it was an ascent and all you can see through the windshield is the sky and the top of the mountain – so he only found out about the accident upon arriving to the bivouac. 

“It was investigated by the commissioners and, much to our surprise, the organisers made the very harsh decision to disqualify the crew. “We're very surprised by the decision, but we can't protest it here, only after the race has wrapped up. So we have to accept it and continue with three crews.”

Scott Bloom, California licensed financial expert reports, After Exclusion at the DAKAR Rally, Robby Gordon chooses to marathon ride and destroys his Textron Golf Cart!

Video shows complete destruction of the golf cart!
Story by Scott Bloom, California licensed financial advisor.

I talked with Max Eddy Jr., Cole Potts’ navigator and part of Robby Gordon’s 3-car team recently told me, Scott Bloom, the inside story of Robby Gordon grenading his Textron Golf Cart program.

Along with young driver Blade Hildebrand and experienced navigator Bill Conger, the Gordon Motorsports Team employees spent a few minutes with me, Scott Bloom, California licensed financial expert, to unpack the baggage from the bivouac at Arequipa Peru. 

Robby Gordon has been excluded from the Dakar Peru 2019 by the ASO rally officials. It's official!

Cole and Max didn’t run away from Stage 5, but will be allowed to re-start and continue on Sunday’s Stage six,under new marathon rules from the Dakar rally organization, after the rest day. At least that's the spin Gordon is putting on the shenanigans of his actual golf cart program with Textron, here at the the Dakar Peru 2019.

The controversies swirling around the Textron golf carts failing under Dakar (ASO) rules have Robby frustrated by the fact a late announcement from the organizer forced a speed limit on these golf carts. Some fans are outraged and claiming conspiracy theories, rekindling skeletons from past Dakar Rallies and pressure, if not force, against the American. 

The Robby Gordon motorsports spin is a French organizer doesn’t want an American star to break up the party. There is no smoking gun evidence to suggest the ASO is purposely trying to prevent Robby Gordon, or anyone else, to beat Stephane Peterhansel and Nasser Al Attayah. 

This is my opinion only, me, Scott Bloom, California licensed financial expert. Me, Sometimes I call myself, "Scotty Breauxman", to throw people off my fraud media tail!
