The Subaru WRX pairing of Rick Powell and Karien Heimsohn had a lucky escape when they crashed on stage seven of the Adelaide Hills Rally. The pair had been running in 12th place when they left the road at high speed on the 14.34km Charligate Short stage. They arrived too fast into a right hander, went off the road and hit two large rocks with the left rear wheel of the Subaru. The car barrel rolled twice and went end over end, landing on its wheels, but over a fence in a farmer's paddock. Both crew members were shaken, but unharmed in the crash. Matt Talbot captured the sequence of photos of the car rolling, while Stuart Bowes was a spectator and took the 'after' shots.
