what a stupid idiot....he just continues on without any considerations to spectators he could easily run someone over exiting the field. He even has too much speed to realise that hes back on the road and just continues. So lucky not to hit someone - should be punished for that move, maybe even banned for some races.

Anything could have happened for the car to keep going like that

Throttle stuck open maybe
I'm sure as a very experienced rally car driver he wouldn't have just floored it lol

But funny as fuck anyway

Why his he stupid he's a rally driver and the first thing they do when they crash, is go for reverse. He's far from a dangerous driver, he just carried too much speed so he shouldn't be punished. Motorsport is dangerous and the spectators stand at there own risk.

Have to agree

1. 2003 WRC Champion

2. Released by Subaru when they announced they were pulling out, ran as a privateer for 2 years, drove for PSWRC in 2011 and returned to Ford as a factory driver in 2012 based on his talent.

3. Has 13 WRC victories to his name.

Yep, absolute useless cunt. Wish I was that useless.
