Fernando Alonso and navigator Marc Coma made their mark on the 2020 Dakar Rally posting the second fastest time across the finish line on stage eight, narrowly missing out on their first-ever stage win by just 4min 4sec.
The pair were the fastest of the four Toyota Gazoo Racing crews on the 477-kilometre looped stage which started and ended at Wadi Al Dawasir.
Ever since they fell back by over two hours because of suspension damage sustained on Stage 2, the pair have consistently posted competitive stage times which shows their determination to push their limits at one of the
world’s most challenging motorsport events.
