L'Estage & Richard Have Big Off At Oregon Trail Rally: Video

Follow Jeff

Any form of motorsports is serious business. Safety is of the utmost concern, no matter what speeds or road types are involved. Rally racing involves all sorts of varying speeds, road types, and is one of the most dangerous forms of motorsports out there.

Tree-lined stages give way to cliff-side-close routes through ever-changing terrain. It's certainly exciting, and it's popularity continues to grow here in the United States.

A recent Rally American event took place in Oregon, in fact... and there was a major off for one driver and co-driver pair.

Antonine L'Estage and Nathalie Richard were running a WRC-prepped Mitsubishi Lancer. The duo entered a high-speed right-left-right section where things went very wrong halfway through. It's hard to tell exactly what went wrong in the video, but the Lancer understeers through the middle secion, which sends the car down a hill and out of sight.

We wish the video had more angles. We could also do without the over-used slow-motion and hyper-dramatic music. Regardless, it's a scary clip, but we're happy to say that both L'Estage and Richard are alright.
