    My word that is an amazing video. The guy at the end must have been relieved to see the door open somewhat.

    That was realy lucky for the camera man and co. Was the driver / co driver ok?

    Yep Hirvonen and co-driver Jarmo Lehtinen were both OK – sorry I should have put that up top.

    That cameraman has GUTS. Notice that when Mikko crashed, the camera just panned to the left. But it didn’t move from its place an inch.

    Glad to see everyone OK.

    I would assume the cameraman did what spectators at most rally events would do and go and help the driver?
