Easily The World's Most Embarrassing Rally Crash

Not exactly Gymkhana material.

You’ve probably had a bad day at work before, but unless you’re really unlucky, it most likely didn’t end up on YouTube. Unfortunately for rally drivers, this is exactly what happens to their bad days at the office, including this one at the 2013 WRC Rally of Finland. The driver starts out by going way, way off the road and hitting a spectator (don’t worry, he’s ok). He then picks the wrong place to get back onto the road, gets stuck and sets fire to some underbrush.

It all does get sorted out eventually, but it’s safe to assume that this was not a highlight of his career. Remember the next time you forget to save a spreadsheet before you close it, at least nothing is catching on fire.
