driver to pilot H3 in world's most challenging off-road race
HUMMER Division and Robby Gordon Motorsports have joined together
to take on the Dakar Rally, widely considered to be the most
grueling off-road race in the world due to its brutal terrain and
extreme environmental conditions. Gordon will lead his Team Dakar
USA from behind the wheel of a HUMMER H3 race truck. His
relationship with HUMMER will also include driving an H3 in the
2006 Baja 1000 and Baja 500 desert races.
USA's main objective will be to prove to the world that American
innovation and determination can compete on the world stage,
said Gordon. We started planning for this just after my
first Dakar Rally, where we won two stages, and I know we are
prepared and ready to take on the world.
According to Susan
Docherty, HUMMER general manager, HUMMER jumped at the chance to
partner with Gordon in this international race. This summer
we took the first step in making HUMMER a true global brand, with
the sale of the first H3s in Europe, said Docherty.
This international event will give us a wonderful stage to
show people around the world that the H3 is an exceptional off-road
vehicle and one they should consider buying.
will consist of an H3 body paired with a specially developed
chassis featuring a suspension designed by him and his Off-Road
team. The H3 will be a tube-chassis vehicle similar to Trophy
Trucks races in the famed Baja 1000, except that it will have a
fully enclosed air-conditioned cockpit, including windshield and
side windows. It will be powered by a production-based General
Motors V8 engine.
The 16-stage Dakar
race covers more than 6,000 miles (nearly 10,000 km) in just over
two weeks. While the event is gaining popularity in the United
States, it has a broad following around the globe. The 2006 Dakar
begins on December 31 in Lisbon, Portugal and runs through
Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, and Guinea before finishing in the
capital city of Dakar, in Senegal . The race covers all types of
terrain, from mountains to sea level and farmland to desert.
Competitors can encounter snow and sub-zero temperatures as well
as sandstorms and searing heat in the desert. More information on
the Dakar race is available at www.teamdakarusa.com or www.dakar.com.
