Dakar 2017

After damaging the suspension on his Hilux during stage 3, Nasser Al Attiyah lost almost three hours in the stage but eventually made it out. The damage was too significant though and he was forced to retire from the race.  There was more bad news for Toyota as Giniel de Villiers also stopped in the stage, eventually losing almost 40min to stage winner Stephane Peterhansel (Peugeot).
