Did anybody see the pics of Markko Martins horrible crash last week? Poor guy crashed his Focus at abt 170kph flat out. Infact I think he hit a rock during a jump.

Worst thing is the crash was so bad that his helmet cracked. The guy is seeing stars....im not kidding he is seeing double now. Markkos crash

Hope he gets well soon

cheers!
Tom

heres something to tell you about Markko's situation

Ford awaits Martin verdict
22 Jul, 11:00

Markko Martin’s participation in two forthcoming rallies in Finland could hinge on a test session at the end of next week.

The Estonian Ford driver’s vision will take some weeks to recover fully from his massive Rally of Argentina crash last Friday, but the preliminary conclusions of two specialists at the Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford are that he is fit to drive and should be able to contest the Rally Finland.

At present, the plan is that Martin takes part in a Ford test in Finland , then decides whether he wishes to participate in the Pirelli Rally, a warm-up event based in Tampere, at the weekend. The World Championship round starts on August 6.

Hey Rehaan
I've got it on my hard disk, recorded from AXN. BTW, not just the crash, the coverage of the entire rally.

I think everone would know this by now, but for those who still didn't catch the vid: Tom's right, he _did_ hit a rock. Apparently he took the wrong line (not a first for Markko [no offence intended to his fans here]), and a rock hit the underbody protection at the *rear end, sending the poor fellows into a horrible end-over-end tumble. He took the jump from the extreme right side of the road; later footage shows Sainz taking it from the extreme left.

Hey Rehaan,
Thy will be done... look out for a mysterious package in your emailbox tomorrow morning
If the Feds ask you where you got it, I don't exist. Markko is a government expirement gone wrong. WRC is a conspiracy, etc. etc.
