Dakar Rally: French mechanic dies in accident
The traveler, Belgian Maxime Frére, was hurt and transferred to the National Guards Healthcare Facility in Jeddah, the declaration included.
The French chauffeur was primary mechanic on the 205 Turbo 16 racing the Dakar classic, according to the declaration.
Independently, 2 days prior to the start of the rally on December 30, an automobile took off, badly hurting its French pilot, Philippe Boutron. The blast struck an assistance automobile coming from French group Sodicars not long after it left its Jeddah hotel for the race path triggering French district attorneys to open a terrorism examination.
There are generally 5 significant automobile classifications in the Dakar Rally: cars and trucks, motorcycles, trucks, UTVs and quad bikes.
