Video: Rally driver crashes through two fields

Highflying Solberg
We all know the sport of rallying is an off-road one, but we didn't think it was this far off the beaten track.

When we saw this video on the interweb, we just had to share it with you.

It's of Petter Solberg getting it a little bit wrong during last weekend's Rally de France – the ninth round of the World Rally Championship.

Solberg, driving his Ford Fiesta WRC car, seems to lose control and finds himself careering into a field.

But the Norwegian continues to plough through the field and into another one taking out telegraph poles along the way. And spectators scatter in fear of being electrocuted.

Solberg, who won the 2003 WRC title in a Subaru Impreza, was eventually placed 26th, while arch-rival Sebastian Loeb won his ninth world title.
