Click above to watch video after the jump


We all have our embarrassing moments. Most, however, aren't quite as public as Petter Solberg's mishap last week at the Bettega Memorial Rallysprint in Bologna, Italy. The 2003 WRC champion was taking some parade laps and waving to the crowd when he decided it was a good idea to get on the roof of his car. He managed the task with relative ease, but quickly found that getting back into the car posed much more of a problem. With Subaru pulling out of WRC in 2009, let's hope this isn't our last memory of Solberg piloting a rally car. Watch the embedded video after jump.

        Is he an idiot for falling from is car while trying to entertein the crowd?
        • 6 Years Ago
        So he isn't an idiot unless he kills someone?
      • 6 Years Ago

      That is awesome. reminds me of a video i saw that featured a redneck riding the roof of his pick-up, right into a telephone pole.
        • 6 Years Ago
        lol.
        The redneck on the pickup truck was freakin hilarious. I loved that one.

        This video also reminds me of the moron that got of the car car while the car was doing donuts and the car ran him over.

      God they need to Que up some Benny Hill music to that video. Hilarious. I always enjoy either of the Solberg's on camera. Hilarity always ensues.
