Heavy testing crash for Dani Sordo
- 10th July 2016, 10:36pm
Dani Sordo crashed his latest spec Hyundai NG i20 WRC in pre-Neste Rally testing in Finland when a suspension arm failed.
The impact sent the car off the road in sixth gear into a massive track side rock, which shot the car high into the air before landing on the driver's side of the car.
This is a remarkable replay of the accident for Sordo during the 2006 rally, which again ended when he impacted a very big rock.
As a result to the accident, the test session was cancelled, as was his entry in this weekend's Autoglym Rally.
It is reported that the crash happened on the Pihlajakoski stage, 400 metres from where Pekka Mällinen crashed his Escort RS2000 during the Thousand Lakes in 1983, which cost the life of co-driver Reijo Nygren.
