- 18th January 2013, 9:40am
Australians Bruce Garland and Harry Suzuki are out of the 2013 Dakar Rally, with their Isuzu succumbing to mechanical problems.
"Sorry, we are all beyond exhaustion. No food or sleep for days," Garland reported.
"We have officially withdrawn. Gutted. When we get better phone service, will give more details. So sorry we could not get her to the finish. We picked up a bad batch of diesel in Cordoba and the trouble started then."
The second Isuzu D-MAX, crewed by Adrian Di Lallo and Steve Riley, is still on stage 12 and tracking well. They are driving the car that took Garland/Suzuki to 11th outright and first diesel ute home in the 2009 event.
