    Default if you like to see rally car crashes - a ton of them

    http://www.autoblog.com/2009/04/26/v...ompilation-of/

    This is a cool 90 minutes video compilation of ~300 rally car crashes. I didn't really count that, I lost count after a few minutes.

    my conclusions:
    1. rally "spectating" is a really dangerous sport !!
    2. ABS would really help
    3. Those countries must have no lawyers
    4. FWD cars spins easily

    My dad took me to spectate once back in 1995 Hong Kong-Beijing WRC Rally, that was the best experience

    Rally Stage in US makes spectators stand like 2 miles away from the action scenes because of the lawyers.

    if it's on tarmac, sometimes it's just a hillclimb event, not really a rally event

    now i know why they don't have downhill event

    The big video depresseses me. I like the videos where they have lots of near misses and some normal stuff interleaved so you can at least pull for the driver to dig his way out. Having been put in this video, these guys have no hope
