Well, there'* no repeats, but some are of the same crash from multiple angles. The Sierra that get rolled upright by the crowd at the start has two other angles further in.
I'll never ever buy a used rally car now.....

Rally spectators are more at risk then the drivers themselves I wonder how many people die in that video.

I know what you mean. You'd think people would pick a better location to watch the race other than the outside of a corner

Thanks Sean! That video ROCKED!
What I found interesting was that most of these crashes were because of understeer, NOT blatent drifting (but there still was plenty of that).

I was surprised how many people seemed to just lock up their brakes and continue to slide, a long way in some cases. I thought they'd let up to regain control.
