Last week the helicopter flew him to the hospital, but Sainz said the pilot to turn around. He didn't want to go to the hospital. :roll:

The Power of Honda!

1988
DAF vs Peugeot 405 I Paris-Dakar 1988, the days of the black smoke...

According to one of the comments,"Shortly after this clip was taken, the second works DAF Turbotwin truck, driven by Theo van de Rijt, with Kees van Loevezijn and Chris Ross as engineer/copilot, somersaulted at 180 kph after hitting a dune.
Van Loevezijn was ejected off the truck and died at the scene, while Ross and van de Rijt were badly injured.

It is after this tragedy that DAF pulled out of rally raid, scrapped its works team and sold its assets to the de Rooy family for Jan and Gerard de Rooy to enter again as privateers at their own wish. Jan had won the Dakar once and Gerard would later do so twice."
