Video: Very lucky X5 racer.

Guys,

This is guy takes luck to a new level. He's racing an X5 (look like a Paris-Dakar kind of race) he manages to keep it from rolling (twice). Awesome! (in my opinion)

Almost Rolls

Sorry if this is a repost... I did a search and could not find it.

Thats an amazing video.He was very lucky.It looked like when he was on the verge of going over he hit that little embankment which seemed to help prevent him from going over.Then he saved it again from going over,nice driving.That spectator was also lucky he didn't get hit.

It's always a fun clip and yes Rally spectators often have no sense.

The best part was the spectator running in the opposite direction. I've always been amazed that they allow spectators to get as close as they do during those rallys. Sometimes it looks like they're only a matter of inches away, but I've seldom heard of fatalaties.

Repost but still a testament to the skills of rally drivers, who are the best drivers in the world, IMO.
