Welcome to Rally Flashback, where we revisit a previous running of the upcoming WRC round. This month we look at the 2014 running of Rally Poland, its 4th time on the WRC schedule.
Forget the WRC. This is how a real rally driver drives: flat out and then some.
What is it about this one corner in Poland that makes seemingly every single rally driver in the entire world crash there?
If your steering wheel fell of while you were driving, you’d probably pull over to the side of the road and wait for a truck to come and tow you to the nearest shop. But you are not a Polish rally driver. If you were, you wouldn’t give a crap if your steering wheel fell off. You’d keep going.
Watching this Mitsubishi Evo slip off the road and shoot end-over-end into the air was scarcely believable the last time we saw it. This new angle gives a better sense of the balletic crash.
Watch how a high-speed crash into a ditch turns a Mitsubishi Evo into an acrobat.
