They broke on the 2nd day and are out of the race.



The 2nd shot is from another race.

They are from Holland and this was their first Dakar. They were running a diesel. Compared to other vehicles in the race, this Jeep looks almost stock. Any details on their fatal break?

For what it's worth, every vehicle breaks. But the team has to have the ability to fix it. Lots of planning and money have to go into finishing the Dakar.
