Ouch... Carlos Sainz crashes out of the Dakar

Carlos Sainz had been tearing up the Argentinian desert and had a healthy lead having won six stages when he drove off a small cliff! Check out the video at 5:15 when Sainz's team mate almost follows him into the ravine but turns at the last minute. No serious injuries, a broken arm for the navigator.

For our Spanish readers, a news report after the jump


  1. Given the impact and the fall, I'm surprised the engine was even turning over at that point. Can't imagine how disappointing it must be to get that far only to have something like this take you out of the race.

  2. cant believe roma didnt go down the cliff too.

    love the site, keep it up.
