“It’s amazing this doesn’t happen more often with the crowd so close.”

That’s what I’ve always thought when viewing these things. Never mind the notorious 1955 Mercedes-Benz accident in which 83 were killed...it’s not necessary for the whole car to drive into the crowd. In a serious crack-up, heavy parts can easily become detached and airborne and really mangle people who have the misfortune of being in the way. In the 1955 MBZ accident, the loose flying hood from the car decapitated several people.

Here’s a great compilation of LOTS of GREAT rallye driving (on and off road), interior and exterior views, some crashes, and great fitting music. (”Workin’ them Angels”, by RUSH).
