The WRC Candidate and African regional championship Safari Rally ended in chaos when almost no crew was able to drive the final 38km stage of the rally without outside assistance.
Long time leader, Skoda driver Manvir Baryan, dropped to third place.
Deep sand holes on that stage had already caused blockages the first time the stage was run earlier that day and many crews retired.
Inheriting the lead was Mitsubishi driver Baldev Chager, who had started the final day 19.6 seconds behind Baryan, with Skoda driver Onkar Rai in second place.
Rai then rolled and Chager found himself challenging for the lead.
The event had many difficulties before it started, when earlier weather conditions had forced route changes, and even in the week of the rally the planned second stage of the event was cancelled.
This week the FIA is due to announce the WRC calendar for 2020, with the Safari and Japan being short-listed.
