Rally racing is not a forgiving sport. It’s not like an oval or most road course’s where you can simply run off the track and not be at risk of smashing a tree, or a hitting a ditch like this driver did.
This video comes from a Hungarian rally race, and shows us why it is not such a good idea to push to hard around a corner. The obviously unsuspecting driver comes out of the turn a little too high and a little too fast, and when the car hits the apex of the turn, it slides straight off the track into the waiting ditch.
Combine wet roads, fast cars, ditches and a driver who’s in it to win it, and the results are disatrous, yet still entertaining to watch.
Thankfully it does not appear that anyone was injured in the accident.
