IRC Skoda Fabia Rally Car Crashes on Top of House

It’s not often that we watch the IRC, since but when we do it’s usually for the crashes. Unfortunetely, the days of turbocharged thousand horsepower monsters are gone, so it’s not as spectacular as it used to be, but the IRC still has entertainment value.
Just watch this recent crash for IC Sanremo 2012, which involved Juho Hanninen, the driver of a factory Skoda Fabia.

During a night session, the car brakes late and slams into the guardrail of a left-hand corner. It flips down a small hill. But that’s not the funny part.

When the Skoda finally stops it’s perched on top of a small house, which has a flat roof. The driver is still giving it some gas when the codriver says “leave it where it is, we're on a roof... Just leave it here.”

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
