Rally Argentina never fails to deliver in terms of stunning imagery.

The 2001 edition – which ended exactly 20 years ago today – will however be remembered more for an unfortunate off-stage event, involving a fire-truck and two Škodas, which occurred in the sleepy, romantically named village of Santa Rosa de Calamuchita.

Colin McRae won by 26.3 seconds ahead of Richard Burns.
