Video: the best save you’ll see today

We've just consulted the TopGear Book of What To Do When You're Crashing, and the driver in the video below executed the golden rule perfectly: when in doubt, flat out.

What you'll see below is a Mitsubishi Evo at a Rally in Poland. Conditions aren't the best as he turns in to a tight right-hander at high speed: it's wet and the road has been buttered with a healthy layer of mud. High speed and low friction results in the car oversteering into a ditch.

At this point most drivers would call it a day and start thinking about excuses of why they went off. Not this guy, he puts his foot flat into the carpet and lets the Evo's four-wheel-drive system sort him out. After a brief boardslide on the lip of the ditch, and a moment of two-wheeled madness, he's back on the track and off to finish the stage.

Count us impressed...
