I have never heard a co-driver scream during a crash like Nicolas Pire does in this one. Of course I am not being critical in any way, but I have watched a lot of rally crashes over the years and I have never heard something like this.
Fortunately, I have also never been upside down in a rally car myself, in either seat.
Pire was co-driving for Steve Poot in a Renault Clio R3 at the Rallye de Wallonie in Belgium when the back wheels were kicked up on a jump, which sent the little car flying into a series of rolls. I was involved in a conversation on Facebook recently where a road racer was complaining that the roll cage in his race car was not acceptable for a rally he was hoping to enter. Perhaps this was because a road racing cage is designed for one or maybe two impacts of a linear type, where rally cages are designed for the incredible violence that comes from a crash like this. Pire and Poot walked away from this.
If you think that little cars like a Clio aren’t really all that fast, check out this video compilation of action from the same rally. The mix of tarmac and gravel must make tire choice a nightmare.
