Guardrail Only Just Saves Rally Car Driver From Falling Off A Cliff

This is intense.

This is exactly why guardrails exist.

On Friday, rally car driver Tomasz Kasperczyk came within inches of driving off a cliff during the FIA European Rally Championship’s Rally Islas Canarias event in the Canary Islands.

Dramatic aerial footage shows the racer from Poland losing control of his Ford Fiesta whilst approaching a turn on a winding road.

The vehicle skids into the guardrail, which incredibly holds strong and stops him the car from plunging into the abyss below.

Despite the precarious position in which they found themselves, Kasperczyk and his co-pilot escaped from the wreckage unscathed.
