Somehow Nicolás Díaz and his co-driver were able to walk away from the wreckage of their Ford Fiesta rally car at last weekend's Rally de Catamarca. How the hell did they survive?

DĂ­az and his co-driver lost their brakes, flew off the road, somersaulted in the air, bounced off the gravel and rolled into a stream. They have the extreme strength of modern roll cages and safety equipment to thank. Some years ago and they would be crippled, if not dead.
