Unreal. The guy calmly steps back, then takes a photo as if nothing had happened. I would have had to change my underwear.

    I applaud men with the Balls of an Elephant. THIS is a guy to buy a round.

  2. Miguel says:

    Mmmmmm… 1995? The cars are too old for 1995… And why didn’t the guy holding the camera even flinch when the car went below him? I would expect a whole lot of camera shake in that millisecond. Is this staged?

  3. Miguel says:

    The first car seems like a 70s Ford Escort, the second like a Lada Samara or something…

  4. Darkwolfbc says:

    I like how he calmly stands there to take the picture then runs over to help.

  5. QB says:

    Ai! Came nigh to spoilin’ my pantaloons!

    This guy must have done this a lot since he positioned himself behind such solid protection – but man was that close.

    National rally’s are for amateurs running on a budget, hence the old cars. They crash a lot, some die. Two old friends, Roger Freeth and Possum Bourne, were pros who both died in national rally events held for amateurs.

    This guy was either lucky or smart. Notice that that the structure he was behind didn’t suffer much damage. Mush be steel reinforced concrete.

    Amazing. That’s the kind of video of yourself you want to show to the ladies. “Yup, that’s me.”

    Who in the H… was shooting the sequence????? Or is this a bit of Aperturing…?

    I call fake.. look at when he starts to back up. Basically right after the car hits the ground following the jump… the car before that did the same thing to that point and he didn’t even blink. The guy was backing up before the yellow car even began to swerve toward him.

  11. QB says:

    If you can’t find a concrete wall then trees often work.

  12. zorkor says:

    I think this guy is a professional photographer in races like these. I bet he has seen so many crashes that things like these dont scare him anymore. Plus close call or no close call, he has to take the pics as thats the reason he is there for.
    Or maybe he wanted to take the pic as a souvenir to remember that car for the rest of his life. Ha! 🙂

  13. Geoffrey says:

    I like how there’s always people out there who really believe that ordinary, uneventful things are all that ever happen in reality, and the rest are so many fakes.

    #2 “… why didn’t the guy holding the camera even flinch …”

    Looks to me like the video camera was on a tripod, unmanned. You’ll notice our near-victim runs behind it and spins it around to capture the wreck.

  15. Miguel says:

    #14 Yeah, I think you’re right, it seems as it took a while to dismount it.

  16. Montanaguy says:

    that was me..where can we meet for that round?

  17. The DON says:

    #14 I disagree

    If you look closely when the camera is spun around, you can see the near victim has just reached the drivers door (right hand door). Unless of course there are two people wearing blue jeans, blue long sleeved top with white vest and have similar hair.
    I think your right about the camera being unmanned on a tripod and behind a similar wall, the operator must have smaller cajones than the camera, as seen byu the delay in him turning the camera on the wreck.
    Good to see the driver climbing out thought

  18. Rick Cain says:

    I guess he knew that the concrete wall was good cover, otherwise he wouldn’t have trusted it.

  19. Holy crap I would be crapping in my pants if that had been me. The guy just doesn’t seem phased at all – that’s amazing.
