Look ma, no airbags

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

Con­tin­u­ing this pa­per’s anti-airbags move­ment, this screen grab from YouTube shows the mo­ment be­fore race driv­ers Yoan Droumenq and Gabriel Du­rand slam into trees in their Citroen C2 rally car af­ter som­er­sault­ing off an­other tree in last week’s Rally Ronde de la Du­rance. Both driv­ers walked away — un­hurt — thanks to a roll cage, bucket seats and dou­ble har­nesses. Note how the rac­ing tech­ni­cians do not be­lieve in sur­round­ing their driv­ers with ex­plo­sive de­vices.
