Rally wipeout

Ntp 5 June 2007 5

Over on Youtube MadBison has posted footage of Car 39 taking a “massive dive over the Mineshaft in the Canberra Rally on 3 June 2007.” The footage is steady but all the action happens in the first few seconds.

The crash also got the “Play of the Day” on one of the TV sports channels…

Best crash I have seen at the ROC since Scot Gurney rolled his Datsun 1200 several times in the air as the car disintegrated following a huge jump out at Pierce’s Humps.

I’ve watched a lot of cars going over that, and you don’t hit it that fast and drive away…

See other examples of the hydroponics sponsored 180B a few years ago (the video is on the net, somewhere), and the Mitsu Evo 8 or so of a couple of years ago – where the driver landed so hard he put his back out and had to be removed via ambulance…

‘Mineshaft’ – very apt name.
Have taken my Forester into (and out of) some very scary places, but doing that hill at pace takes the cake…

I work with Tristan’s dad and we have spent the last couple of days talking of nothing else. One very, very lucky lil’ bastid.
