MSN Cars joined the 2014 Dakar Rally and shadowed the Race2Recovery team - a squad of injured ex-servicemen who've banded together to take on the monstrous challenge of the world's toughest motor race. The team included amputees and veterans from Afghanistan, all desperate to make the finish line two countries, a fortnight and 5,000 miles later. This is the story of how they got on.

The startline podium for the 2014 Dakar Rally was in Rosario, Argentina. Race2Recovery entered two Wildcat rally cars and a supporting race truck, known in Dakar parlance as a T4. This podium is really all about satiating egos – everyone gets introduced to the huge crowds and everyone gets to do their best ‘rally driver walk’.
