Let us show you a terrible idea.

This little video clip has it all: a BMW 6-series rally car, a Lada and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution with a trunk that’s come loose. Then a couple of people decide that the fast-closing gap between the Evo and the Lada is a good time to run across the stage road, and almost get taken out.


I’m sure it’s a Code Brown: Defcon 9001 for all parties involved: both the pedestrians as well as the driver who’d rather not maim any people today.

There are good reasons why rallies have designated places for fans to stand, and rallies can be dropped from series schedules if organizers feel as if fans are out of control. Stand there! Wait until the rally is over to cross the street.

h/t to Goran!
