Rally Car Crashes

Those who enter rallies do so knowing full well there’s a solid chance their car might not make it out in one piece. Crashing is just part of the rally game. This YouTube video shows how a handful of rally cars met their doom as they entered one very slick, low-speed corner. A video shared on YouTube Sunday shows action from last weekend’s Śląska Rally in Poland—or more specifically, a handful of rally cars at the rally crashing into a ditch. From the looks of the video, the cars came in hot, but not too hot, from a faster stretch of the rally stage, and were forced to slow down to handle the upcoming corner without going off the course. But because of the stretch of road near the corner is wet and muddy, some of the cars—mostly small European hatchbacks—have trouble making the corner. This, in turn, led to them driving into the ditch next to the course. Going off a stage in rally happens. The important thing is whether you and the helpful spectators around you manage to push the car right-side-up so you can keep hustling down the course.

Rally car racing carries with it a high risk of spectacular crashes that can have potentially disastrous results. On Friday, during the first stage of the Rally Islas Canarias in Spain, Polish driver Tomasz Kasperczyk experienced that the hard way when he was narrowly saved from crashing off a mountain slope by a guardrail.

As a sport, rally car racing has a history of huge crashes. In January of this year, the Dakar Rally featured a crash that came dangerously close to hurting spectators.

Dramatic footage has emerged of a huge crash during a rally in Lithuania. The video, captured during the 300 Lakes event last week, shows driver Alexander Gorelov getting too much air off a jump and landing hard on the front of the vehicle. The car can then be seen flipping over a couple of times and coming to a rest in an upright position. Gorelov managed to escape unharmed.

But since the bobble hat brigade now hold camera phones in their hands instead of a flask of Bovril, there’s nowhere to hide for drivers who get things a bit wrong. And, to save yourself falling into an inescapable YouTube ‘related videos’ hole, someone has thankfully compiled some of the weirdest, wonderful and damn right scary rally mishaps of the last year.

At first glance, this video may appear to be just another bobble-hatted rally fan’s handy-cam footage. But stick with it, as the action from the Jari-Pekka Ralli in Finland gets very, very crashy.

Up until the minute mark, the most exciting thing to happen is a mustard yellow BMW E36 getting out of shape and penduluming on the snowy surface. In rally terms, no biggie.

If the car was still functioning and had the necessary mechanical bits attached, they’d flip it back on all fours, before heaving it back onto the road to finish the stage. Then upload the footage to YouTube, obviously.
