Looking for a thrill? Try standing exposed on a corner of one of the most dangerous rallies on the planet.

Spanish rally legend Carlos Sainz Sr. was forced to retire from the Dakar Rally after this terrifying rollover into a ravine, reports Red Bull. Just under five kilometres from the end of Stage 4, Sainz lost over two hours because of the roll, which put him out of contention for a rally win.

The two-time World Rally Championship winner came hurtling around the corner as he looked to make up time after an earlier navigational error, and the rollover missed onlooking spectators by a matter of centimetres. Fortunately, according to Road and Track 54-year-old Sainz escaped with only a little pain in his back and the spectators were able to get out of the way in time.
