Driver destroys dad's classic racecar

Post by Growler » Thu Feb 09, 2012 3:18 pm

An Australian driver flew off a road at a speed of 130 kilometres an hour and landed in a riverbed but was not injured during the Tasmanian state rally.
The incident involving 24-year-old George Miedecke, who has driven in some NASCAR developmental series races in the United States, occurred on Jan. 28 but has become popular on internet video sites since a film clip was released this week.
Miedecke was driving his father Andrew's 1970 Ford Capri Perana as it rounded a corner in the Targa Rally and crashed into the Huon River south of Hobart.
Andrew Miedecke, also an Australian racer, said he had lent his son the car on the basis that "he didn't crash and he didn't finish second."
