Watch: massive Evo crash at Pikes Peak

This is what happens when you fall off a mountain in a Mitsubishi

Remember last year when a man called Bobby drove off the edge of Pikes Peak? Well, it's happened again, in exactly the same spot.

The corner in question is appropriately named the 'Devil's Playground', and this year it took out the #463 2003 Mitsubishi Evo IX of Jeremy Foley. He was racing in the Time Attack division when he quite literally flew off the mountain and rolled approximately five gazillion times, before the Evo came to rest by a boulder. A boulder.

Thankfully, both Jeremy and his co-driver are reported to be OK and in hospital with only minor injuries. That rollcage did its job.
