Watch a rally car fall off Pikes Peak

Bobby Regester raced his modified Pontiac Sunfire to victory at Pikes Peak in the past, but this weekend he made a small miscalculation and literally drove off a mountain. It is one of the scariest crashes you'll hopefully only have to ever see here.

Climbing a narrow path at speeds exceeding 100 mph along the edge of the mountain tests the limits of both car and driver. Regester, despite having a lot of experience driving the mountain, reached the limit of one or both and suffered by crashing down Pikes Peak.
