Delecour’s sickening Rally Australia crash – 2002

At Rally Australia 2002, Neil Blackbourn was one of the first on the scene to Francois Delecour’s horrible accident on the fast Murray Pines stage.

His first hand account of the accident yet again proves the importance of safety, and the care which needs to be taken in our amazing sport.

"There is a stretch of road in the Murray Pines area, near the small West Australian town of Dwellingup, south east of Perth, where I have spent a little time. Okay, a lot of time - watching rally cars. Photographing rally cars. Listening to rally cars.
