Opel rally car demolishes building

There are crashes and then there are crashes. This is emphatically the latter, as a competitor in a Belgian event partially demolishes a brick building with the help of his Opel Ascona rally car. Next time, we'd recommend a backhoe, bulldozer or perhaps some dynamite.

Despite the aftermath of the crash, there were thankfully no injuries to report (aside from the building). As our friends at Carscoops point out, the question now is whether the owner of the building should charge the rally team for repairs or thank them for tearing down what, based on the damage, was a rather rickety building in the first place.
