wtf happened.

i read the discussion on jalopnik about weight transfer which is fine but it looks like the driver completely forgot to turn in for the corner?

It just looks like he braked too late, or maybe the surface was less grippy than he expected. Who knows, maybe his throttle was stuck open? It kind of sounds like it was. But maybe that was another car in the area?

It also looks like he tried to turn while locked up, which is a no-no, especially without ABS.

They're lucky they landed in the water. It was certainly softer than landing on solid ground upside down.

you can see him trying to turn? i dont see anything.

i'd rather land on the roof of a car in a cage than in water. you ever been in a racecar? its not exactly easy to get out, especially upside down, under water after a 100kmh impact

If you look just before hitting the barrier, you can see his tire turned to the right, not a huge amount though.

Obviously you wouldn't want deep water, but you can just see at the end that it was sitting on the bottom on the side. Driver was probably out of the water, but the co-driver was probably under water. That would definitely have been scary. Fortunately they both made it out ok.

Even a WRC spec cage is partially crushed rolling down a hill. I doubt the Porsche's cage is as good as a WRC cage. Either way, scary crash.

Sounds like a stuck, wide-open throttle

Even so, you can still hit the clutch, and stop in time...I think it was driver error.

Rally spectators, probably used to it lol. I think it's almost good they hit the water and not something solid coming down on the roof like that!

I think there's a tiny bit of wheel turn right before he hit...
