Default 4 flat tires, in 90 km of road!

Hi, so this is what happened. Me and my dad got into a very bad gravel road here in south america, full of very sharp rocks, with a new Audi A7... in the first 6 km we got two flat tires, both on the left side. No advise from the TPMS. This was on christmas, this was the night of the 24th, so we had christmas stranded in a gravel road. The next day we got home hitchhiking, and we got the two tires fixed. The other day, we came with a 4x4 and the two tires. We put the tires in place and we continue for around 20 km. Then another flat tire. This time one of the fixed ones. We had a spare wheel, but it lasted just 8km. Then the same. We got the spare wheel and one tire fixed. This time we finally got out of that road. I still don't know why the TPMS didn't work until we got out of the gravel road. The tires were Pirelli P-Zero 255/40 R19 100Y tires. Not sure about the spare wheel. How is this possible? Sorry for my bad english.
