Guardrail Saves Rally Car From Terrifying Crash

You probably don't think much of the guardrails lining the roads you drive on, but this clip will change that. At this past weekend's Rally Islas Canarias, a single guardrail prevented Tomasz Kasperczyk and his Ford Fiesta RS from tumbling down a mountain. As if you needed another reminder that while exciting, rally racing is often terrifying.

The crash was a result of a brake failure. You can see his right rear tire lock up just before hitting the guardrail. Amazingly, Kasperczyk and co-driver Damain Syty were able to get out of the car and walk away.
