He's lucky. that crash was CRAZY, how the camera just films them hitting the wall then crashing into the cliff side then the camera freezes up... if the car would've gone off the cliff it was perched on it might have been over....

Yeah that was a really bad wreck. Glad everyone was more or less okay. Although I do feel bad for his co-driver because he has to now sit out the rest of the season.

his coming over to Subaru was known before they aired the Rally on Speedvision.

He signed the contract a couple weeks ago...

Check the news at the Subaru World Rally Team website. It's in the news section. Think it was October 15th that the news was released.
