Ari Vatanen and Bruno Berglund getting a little loose behind Jacky Ickx and Christian Tarin during the 1989 Paris Dakar. The race would conclude with a famous one-two for the pair of Peugeot 405s, with Vatanen first and Ickx in second.

For us, this terrific photograph captures everything we’ve ever loved about Dakar.
