Yesterday, while many of his friends were autocrossing near Dallas, Texas, they were thinking about Jeremy Foley. Why? Because he'd be running up Pikes Peak in a 560-plus-horsepower (at the wheels) Mitsubishi Evolution by Evolution Dynamics. That's Most of our idea of a very good day. But sometimes, things go a bit wrong.
That's what happened for Jeremy and his co-driver Yuri Kouznetsov, unfortunately: things went a bit, well, airborne wrong. Off the side of the mountain wrong. Giant cartwheels shedding body panels wrong.
The good news is, however, that both Foley and Kouznetsov are OK. As Foley posted to his Facebook feed, "I thought I posted already, but Yuri and I are ok. A little beaten up but nothing major. Thank you so much to everyone for the kindness and support! What a wonderful feeling to feel so loved!"
Admittedly, the crash is pretty spectacular--and most of all we're glad they're both OK--but we'd rather have seen them make it to the top of the hill. Judging by their pace in qualifying, it would have been a solid time.
