Mini win the Dakar Rally

Posted: 17 Jan 2012
With a starting grid of 443 vehicles, 97 motorcycles, 12 quads, 78 cars and 60 trucks made it to the finishing line of the 33rd Dakar. According to our Top Gear maths, that's just over 50 per cent. A small indication of just how a course made up of dunes, water, dust and rocks leave cars, bikes, truck and quads crying for mechanical mercy.
