Photographing rally car racing from right next to the track can be extremely hazardous to your health. Here’s a 1-minute video that shows how one cameraman narrowly avoided getting squashed recently by a crashing and flipping rally car.
Positioned at the end of a bend, the man found himself directly in the path of an out of control car that slammed into the hill and began rolling toward him. He grabbed his camera and tripod and managed to sidestep the car just as it barreled past.
And it’s not just out-of-control cars that photographers need to watch out for — runaway tires can be a scary experience as well.
