    Ya, i should know. I'm one of the "lucky" few who have flown off the road in a rally car and hit a tree, and managed to walk away from it with just a sore neck :)

    I've seen one horrific crash by the great old Makinen. Or was it him. The car flew off the road and started rolling and bouncing like 10 or so times. It was doing all sort of flips and twist in the air and in between trees. In the end, Makinen came out totally unscathed and was still be able to give an interview. His car was beyond recognition though.

    Didn't know how Martin crashed, must be bad but i'd say Park was unfortunate that the impact zone probably concentrated on the navigator side.
