    Rallye accident with close call this week

    Interesting short video. It happened in a rallye but it can easily happen to anybody. This happened this week in a portuguese rallye (Rali de Montágua).

    If you lok closely at the beginning of the video, the driver Pedro Peres as he cuts the croner hits something on the apex of the curve with his front right wheel, and he punctures the tire. He is not aware of it right away as he is on the straight but as he trie to make the left turn and loads that front-right tire, he understeers and makes a policem "soil" himself Smiley

     

     

     

    This has actualy happened to me in the sportquad on trail roads, but fortunately the tires on quads have very little air pressure (and the road it dirt/gravel have much less traction) and the difference in loss of traction with the slashed tire is much less and you don't loose control like this... end result, had to call it a day and had to limp back home 30miles with the weight on three wheels Smiley but imagine in a car on a mountain road like this and you meet a tree  censored.gif

    One of those occasions when you become a passenger...

    Glad you were okay in the quad...

    He shouts "get out the way Policeman"!

     Seems incredible skill threading the needle between the parked car and the cop. He drove it as long as he could.

    Man what a great driver, he really pointed it between the cop and that car right as he saw that road as an escape route. Almost made it unharmed too. Just goes to show how on edge these guys are. thanks for the video.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Impressive.  Still begs the question why they're stood on the outside of a bend though?

     I think their intention was to keep anyone from going down that road. They wisely abandoned that plan at the last moment, something our friend Constable Bubbles wouldn't have done!
