2017 Canadian Rally Champion driver Crazy Leo and co-driver Alex Kihurani roll their rally car into a snowbank, then keep going to win the class and finish 2nd overall in the 2018 Rallye Perce-Neige Maniwaki. The team also won the most stages in the event, outpacing not only all other Production cars, but even Open Class rally cars.
The crash was caused by a setup problem, which caused snap over-steer on corner entries. Before the accident you can see Leo struggling to keep the car straight in braking zones and on turn-ins. Top level rally cars are very difficult to set up, and ultimate setup is often on a knife-edge; the smallest adjustment can make the car very difficult to handle.
