Canadian Rally Crash: You Can Bleed When The Stage Is Over

Posted in Crashes, General, Off-Roading, Racing, Rally, Subaru by Kurt Ernst | August 19th, 2010 | 5 Responses |

Anyone who’s ever raced cars will understand this video completely. When the dust settles, and you’ve established that both yourself and your co-driver are alive and relatively intact, the only thing to do is get back in the race. In rally, you’re competing against the clock, not other cars; lose time in one stage, you can very likely make it up in another.

My hat is off to Pat Richard and his co-driver Alan Ockwell. As soon as the car stops sliding, Richard is calling for spectators to push the car over. Ockwell seems rather relaxed for a man who was very nearly beheaded by a tree branch, and the pair soon managed to get the car upright and running. Better yet, they went on win this stage, despite their off-course excursion and aerodynamic enhancements to their Subaru. Bruises, cuts and broken bones heal over time, but glory is forever.

    Also shows how well made the roll cages are made too. He flipped the car into trees and was able to drive aways and win.
