    10 minutes before Nasser hits the trail. This leg is going to be brutal over massive sand dunes - I expect the rate of attrition to be high today....

    Cars to go first and bikes and quads to follow - that's novel - Nasser and Mathieu need to be right on the ball as they won't have any tracks to guide them.

    Looks like he missed a caution in the road book (assuming if there was one), or thought that he could take it like a trophy truck - but it looks like the rear end kick got him.

    The chase truck may be able to try to bolt it back together if there is a chance, but he still has a long way to go.

    6 kms into the leg. They walked away from that.

    ouch! hope they are both look ok. Roof looking like has been twisted in accident.If the chase truck has spare body panels the may be able to fix but if roll cage is damage they out. Thats problem with flat open desert is you don't sometimes see little humps that can kick a car into roll.

    They have at least a 4 - 5 hour wait until one of the trucks gets to him as well.

    Now it is Sainz, who was leading by wp1, who lost some 9minutes by wp2. It must be dunes and navigation, I am really liking this starting of Dakar and from the beggining it looks like Coma was a great choice for race leader!

    Nothing that has come to light yet... I'm sure the web will be flooded with it later...
