Downhill in a hurry - with bruises!

The 2012 running of the annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb was held on August 12th.  It was the first time the event had taken place on an all-hard-surface road, and several records were broken as a result.  So were several cars, including the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII of Jeremy Foley and his co-driver Yuri Kouznetsov.  Here are two videos of his crash, one from outside the car and the second from inside.

To coin a phrase . . . that won't buff out!
