The Argentine Rally carried out its first stage of the second date of the Pagos del Tuyú Rally this Saturday, where David Nalbandian was the protagonist of a tremendous turnaround with the Toyota Yaris MRT.
The Cordovan starred in a shocking turnaround in the second stage of the day on Saturday in the special that went from La Larga to Las 3 Marías.
The former tennis player faced a curve that bent to the right but he passed by and, when the car bit the shoulder, he began to fly on its axis.
In total, King David's car made 4 laps.

But the tragedy was lucky.
In addition to both David and his companion having escaped unharmed, a photographer was waiting on the bumpy curve and found that the Toyota was on top of him.
Fortunately, the vehicle stopped rolling after four laps and within inches of the photojournalist who walked away from the scene.
Nalbandian's Toyota Yaris suffered several breaks which forced him to abandon the test.
By Sunday, the team led by Federico Villagra was able to repair the Yaris and the Cordovan returned to the competition.
