Baradero: Qatar`s Nasser Al-Attiyah clinched his second Dakar Rally car title on Saturday to give British marque Mini their fourth consecutive success in the grueling event.

Al-Attiyah, who won his first Dakar in 2011, became only the seventh multiple winner in the car category.

He assured himself of the 2015 crown with a third place finish in Saturday`s stage from Rosario which was shortened to only 34 kilometres due to heavy rain.

The 44-year-old veteran has also enjoyed success in the Olympic Games, winning bronze in skeet shooting at the 2012 Games in London.
