Argentina - It was almost a fairy tale ending, no one could have possibly scripted the finale of the 2018 Dakar Rally that well. 

All who followed the progress of the event, especially the progress of the Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa (TGRSA) team must have been on the edge of their seats following the events of the penultimate stage of the previous day.

Great finale

Veteran Carlos Sainz clinched overall victory in the 2018 Dakar Rally on Saturday, finishing safely after the 14th and final stage around Cordoba in Argentina for his second win in the race.

The 55-year-old, the father of Renault Formula 1 driver Carlos Sainz Jr, ended atop the overall standings ahead of a pair of Toyota drivers - two-time winner Nasser Al-Attiyah and Giniel de Villiers in third.
