Robert Kubica is probably very glad that guard rail was there, and that it held when he slid his car into it.

This gasp-inducing crash happened on Saturday at the Canary Islands Rally, forcing Kubica to retire his Citroen from the race. He's probably not happy about that, but I'm sure he's happy he didn't fly off the cliff.

The best part of the video, however, isn't the crash — it's the jeers and whistles from all the spectators. Gotta love rally fans.
