A lot of videos from this year’s Dakar Rally have gone viral on social media in which locals are seen assisting stranded rally drivers.
There’s a large number of the support crew that goes along with the rally drivers ‘cus let’s admit it driving off-road over such long distances is not the easiest of things. However, given how many locals have stepped up to help, many netizens are questioning if a support crew is required, especially when you have such a kind, local people, as these who are going out of their way to help.
A compilation video has been making the rounds on social media, showing how the locals are assisting in a variety of ways, from transporting motorcycles on the backs of pickup trucks to pulling out vehicles from ditches. That’s Saudi hospitality for you.
