Check all hose clamps. Engine radiator clamp popped off. The temperature light came on. I stopped the car, I smelt radiator fluid and sure enough there was fluid everywhere. We towed car back to camp. After further inspection the clamp was not fully tighten, caused the hose to pop off. I am glad it happened on sand highway, and not back deep in the dunes.

I also had a coolant leak at the pipe that goes into the engine block. O ring got pinched in assembly. Luckily I caught it before engine overheated.

Thanks for the heads up! I will put this on the pre-race check list!
I already found a few loose balts here and there, but mostly just plastic bolts.
