Face it, rally is just like NASCAR
the only time you really pay attention is when there is some insane crash video like this one where Yoan Droumenq's Citroen C2 met with a medium sized tree at the recent Rally Ronde de La Durance.
Droumenq and co-driver Gabriel Durend were beyond lucky: the car flips in the air and hits the tree with full force, completely crushing the rear of the car, the tree did not so much as shake. 50 cm forward and it's not clear the two would have been able to walk away.
Ooh la la indeed.
So that makes the news but in reality most cars managed to negotiate those tricky switch backs... even if just, much to the delight of the crowd.
