hella good driver. You can see in the slo mo he knows it wants to flip again after the initial save. Before the car is even tipping again, he's already started to turn with it. Nerves of steel there. Thanks for the post, I missed it the last pass.

I don't subscribe to the "good driver" theory. At that angle, the direction of the tires means about as much a the color of the driver's helmet. I think AFTER the thing righted he did a great job of straightening out and moving on... but it was fortuitous terrain that kept him upright.

I wonder if the guy running away realizes how lucky he is that the truck turned??

*shrug* terrain played a huge part, to be sure. But in slo mo I see a lot of similar driving techniques in this video and the crazy arab SUV on 2 wheels for a mile video.

Reminds me of the motorcycle video where the bike fishtailed, threw the driver off and he still managed to get back on to finish the race. Saw it on RealTV.

I disagree. Turning the wheel toward the ground would pull the car "up" and flip it flat again. If you really think it was BMW stability control... well... A: there's no way in hell their stability control is going to do much with only 2 wheels to work with, and B: this is a race car and wouldn't have any anyway.

And I'll bet that running dude needed a new pair of pants after that!

No, not electronic stability control... I think it was sheer dumb luck that the terrain lent itself to the tires not digging in and rolling it.

Tires not digging in? The tires didn't need to dig in to roll it, the car was all but rolled, the door was 6'' from the ground. All it needed was gravity, which was counteracted by the driver reacting quickly and planting the throttle.

The terraine definitely helped, but it would not have been saved without just the right kind of steering and throttle input. Well done to the driver. Dakar is such an awesome event, can't wait till next year. McRae will be back in the Nissan... WOOT!

Um, you want to explain what part of the universe you live in where a car on its side can be righted by spinning the wheels??????

No, the momentum of the car saved it. It was rolling over at the same time it was turning... it continued to turn enough thatthe continued momentum righted it again. Watch the slow-motion part... when he's 6" from the ground, no force out of those tires could have righted the vehicle.

Well, you're partly right, it was the momentum that saved it, but the driver got the car to rotate in such an angle that the momentum of the rolling car was in the proper direction to right it. Watch the first section, you'll see the spinning front-left tire and you'll see the car rotating in the direction that the tire is turning it. It's not magic, something's causing the car to rotate, and it's that tire.
