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.
