Camera inside rally car shows spectacular crash: drivers emerge unscathed
Belgium's Thierry Neuville and his co-driver Nicolas Gilsoul survived a violent crash in the wine-growing area of Germany on Thursday.
The pair were taking part in shakedown testing, ready for the start of the Germany rally on Friday.
Neuville slid off the road on a curve and the Hyundai i20 WRC turned sideways then rolled about six times through rows of grape vines before stopping. The Hyundai Motorsport team reported both were unhurt and attempts will be made to repair the car in time for the rally start on Friday morning.
Volkswagen's Jari-Matti Latvala, world champion Sebastien Ogier and Andreas Mikkelsen were the fastest three cars over the shakedown stage, 4.6 kms of roads through the Moselle wine-growing district.
