1989 Dakar RallyAri Vatanen certainly wasn’t afraid to get his hardware a little bit wet.

Especially if that race was the 1989 Paris Dakar rally! The car of course, was the Peugeot 405 T16 Grand Raid, in which he went on to win the event outright. Vatanen would follow up with a second victory at Dakar in 1990.
