Hawkeswood’s lucky Otago Rally escape
This is the damage caused to Andrew Hawkeswood's Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX after he hit a forestry gate on the final special stage of the 2009 Rally of Otago.
Not only did Hawkeswood complete the stage, but he went on to claim third outright in the event.
This dramatic shot was taken by spectator Craig Hayward, who has photos available to competitors who may be interested. Contact Craig at firstname.lastname@example.org .
