What a high-speed crash looks like from inside a rally car (video)

Everyone was fine after this incident – but only just.

RALLY DRIVER STEVE Poot and navigator Nicolas Pire were competing in the 2014 Rallye de Wallonie in Belgium, when they hit a small bump at high speed.

This is how scary it was:

Both Poot and Pire survived the crash uninjured – but only due to the roll cage and other safety reinforcements on their rally car.

That shouting after the screams have subsided? That’s Poot asking Pire “Can you feel your legs?”

He wrote afterwards:

If such risks are possible in rally with the highest level of security, it is worth remembering (for young people, among others) that a standard car is not made ​​to withstand that kind of caper. The result is so often fatal.

Drive safe.
