Safari Rally ARC round

Here's a quote from winner Juha Kangas (Mits) I thought was quite good:

But the roads are very slippy and when you get off line there is lot of mud on the edges and if you get out there, you can go off. If you go out there it is very difficult to come back.

“We had a big moment, maybe fifth gear 180 or 190 kph and we hit a sign but it was OK and we got through,”

Now that is brown-undies material!

Also there was a rather innocuous crash with some serious consequences. The Evans' had a high speed crash the Corolla resulting in Simon breaking his femur but the strange part is that Sue didn't realise they had crashed, she thought there had been a breakdown until she saw Simon's state. Sounds rather strange, I'll have to make sure I watch the coverage on tv.
