Evo Crashes at Pikes Peak 2012 [MERGE]

Not sure if this had been posted anywhere yet. Jeremie Foley's Evo IX went over the edge at the "Devils Playground" at this years Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Top Gear UK posted an article and the video of the crash. Both Jeremie and his co-driver are OK, but man it looked like an insane ride down the hill!

Ha! Just caught the '03 Evo IX thing. I kind of skipped past the article and went straight to the video ;-)

i also like the last picture; the engine bay aside from the very front looks almost untouched, something ironically amusing about that..

I can't imagine how sick the whole crew was after that...spending so much time building that car, then to see it at the bottom of a mountain. The cage looks surprisingly good still for that kind of hit.
