Racing of any variety is inherently dangerous, and rally racing may very well be the most dangerous flavor of all motorsports. Niceties like track runoff and Armco barriers are replaced with sturdy oak trees, water hazards and some nice old lady's front porch. Hell, just getting out of the car post-off can be hazardous to your health.

Just ask the BRAKIM Racing team. Driver and co-driver suffered a brief miscommunication last weekend during Stage 7 of Rally West Virginia, which was enough to put the team's Subaru down a quick embankment.

After the party came to a stop, the co-driver decided to do his best to extricate himself from the car by climbing up and out of the passenger window. That's when things began to get really hairy. Ladies and gentlemen, please keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times. Amazingly enough, no one was harmed. Check out the video below to see the craziness.

      I like how calm and professional both the driver and navigator were after the crash. No blame was being cast or anything.

        Agreed. They sounded like two close buddies who were just out having a good time.

      They seem very calm and collected for having a crash like that. But seriously, I was expecting more from the tantalizing headline. What a rip.

          HA! Glad no one was injured. A grizzly bear in West Virginia would have been a whole different story! Well, Matt, as Kim Demotte once told me, rally cars come in two varieties, those that HAVE been rolled and those that WILL be rolled.
