Known as the toughest rally in the world, the Dakar Rally certainly takes no prisoners.
The event began in Argentina and concluded in Chile, with over 100 drivers taking part.
This remarkable footage was taken by Jose Villegas on day two of the rally and it shows the hidden dangers that await every driver at most points along the hugely demanding terrain.
The video shows not one, but TWO, unsuspecting truck drivers falling victim to one of the many large hidden ridges on the course.
You might ask how they could have failed to see the drop, but negotiating the course is never easy, particularly at race speed.
