that car isn't the Jimco buggy but the SMG buggy. It was the car Sainz in enter into Dakar with redbull the following year after in was with Nasser in Jimco Buggy. One Jimco buggy my understanding is gone to Xraid has development car for buggy project. Guerlain Chicherit drove it last year Dakar but force to retire the car.Africa Eco Race 2017 Stage 4 (bike section stage winner - Gev Sella (Israel))

I see Sainz's previous Jimco based buggy is competing, perhaps RG should send Sheldon to this event with a Gordini to get some more Rally Raid experience.
Yeah, I believe some of RG's team was held at gun point in Mauritania during the last race in Africa.Maybe if RG entered a MRAP or Oshkosh etc, there are unfriendlies in that part of the World. I would like to see the 'waiver', enter at your own risk etc for that event. Is RG lined up for the trophy truck snow race?
