After a great start on day 1 at Dakar, Canadian rally raiders David Bensadoun and Patrick Beaulé rolled their Toyota Tacoma on day 2.
Canadians David Bensadoun and his co-driver Patrick Beaulé were victims of a roll over aboard their ALDO Toyota Tacoma near the end of their journey in Stage 2 of the Dakar Rally. There were more damages to the truck, compared to injuries suffered by Bensadoun or Beaulé. Only one of the drivers was left with a ‘ding.’
Even though it was damaged, the #ALDORacing Toyota Tacoma continued on its way to finish 57th overall (provisional result), a slight slide from a 47th-place finish on Sunday. A sleepless night awaits the ALDO mechanics who will have to overhaul the Toyota for the Tuesday morning start…
“A small roll, and lots of action today,” says Beaulé, who is rushing to get their truck prepared for tomorrow’s action. “A crazy day. We were just at the finish of the Special Stage when the incident occurred. We are exhausted. The car was running very well. The Toyota is very strong and we will rebuild most of it tonight.”
As of this writing, the ALDO Racing squad are showing in 51 position overall and are waiting to head onto today’s stage.
