At the event Matt Campbell made a statement about the plans with Robby Gordon and the motive of his visit. “There was no agenda in fact, but Robby and I are planning and talking about going to the Dakar as a solid North American team, not mixed on cars and teammates but maybe getting together to share some of the logistic and infrastructure…”

Getting clear about this as a project and nothing as a fact, Robby thanked Matt´s invitation and said that he is looking forward to get this alliance cleared out for the benefit of both El Martillo Racing and Robby Gordon Racing. Gordon was very emphatic saying that he wants to win the Dakar and that getting a solid team is the best way to go.
