Three spectators died this weekend when a Mitsubishi rally car speared off into a crowd on a hill climb up Mt. Tara in Serbia. It is difficult to watch, difficult to assign blame and difficult to find a clear lesson to take away.
The organizers for this event, a non-championship event in the FIA's European Hillclimb Championship, banned all spectators from standing in this location. It was the same situation in the deadly French rally crash earlier this year. This crash makes it painfully clear why it should be avoided.
