Rallying: Qatar's Al Attiyah pulls out of Dakar Rally

TUPIZA, Bolivia, Jan 5, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 05th Jan, 2017 ) - Qatari two-time winner Nasser Al Attiyah has been forced to pull out of the Dakar Rally on Thursday, his Toyota team confirmed.

The 46-year-old, the 2011 and 2015 champion, would not start Thursday's fourth stage after losing the wheel of his car during the previous day's special.

Al Attiyah came to a halt for over an hour when he damaged a wheel on his vehicle. "The damage to his Toyota Hilux is too extensive to be repaired by his team," organisers added.
