Roll Over Bethoven!!!!!

Just wondering, how long do you think it took for the car to go from pic 1 to pic 9? I'd say less than a sec.

Did they actually take 9 pics in a sec or are these video frames converted into pics???

For reference, look at the long wooden stick near the front tyre in pic 1, watch it as it falls in each frame. That's how fast this car toppled.

Regards...

BTW, Surprised no one Hailed King Carlos. Argentina proved to be remarkable rally for Sainz & Citroën.
Definetely my favourite driver. No, One of my ALL Time Favourite Driver.

Waste of points, well actually its not. Its just half way thru (the championship). And Sainz is I think 3rd as far as championship standings are concerned, sharing it with Martin, behind Loeb and Solberg. All though its too optimistic to hope for him to win the championship coz Loeb is their number1 driver (Citreons). But this win has just helped Citreon build the lead over Ford. So I dont really think Waste of points.
And yeah even I hope Markko recovers b4 Finland.
Also would love to see Hirvonen do good at Finland.
Go Scooby Go!
