Mark Tapper under the full moon – Click above to watch video after the jump

Let's take a moment for quick lesson in target fixation courtesy of New Zealand rally driver Mark Tapper. Earlier this month, Tapper was participating the Rally New Zealand in his WRC Mitsubishi Evo. From the looks of things, the driver was keeping a pretty good pace until he saw something a little out of the ordinary – a full moon.

A spectator on the left side of the course took it upon himself to drop his pants and give Tapper both cheeks, at which point the driver lost his concentration and came into the next corner too hot. The resulting carnage was predictable. The Evo's tail slapped an embankment, causing the whole kit and caboodle to go shiny-side down. Go ahead and hit the jump to see for yourself, but be warned – Tapper's response to the incident isn't what we'd call safe for work. Thanks for the tip, Adam!
