Red Bull Rally Team's Bernardo Sousa has withdrawn from the Rally of Turkey, following the accident in SS10, which left a spectator injured.

Contrary to initial reports, it now seems Sousa's Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX did not hit the spectator that was injured. Indeed the incident occurred when Sousa's car hit a stone and sent it flying though the air and into a cordoned-off area, where it struck the leg of the unlucky fan.

"200 metres after the start of the stage I drove over a stone that flew and hit a spectator," confirmed the youngster. "As I saw the fan go to ground I stopped immediately to check what had happened.

"It was a real shock for me which left me feeling really sick. After talking with the team I decided to quit the rally as there would have been no point driving further in my condition."

Red Bull Rally Team boss Raimund Baumschlager was fully supportive of his drivers' decision to stop running.

It was Initially though that he suffered a broken leg and concussion, but turns out the concussion didnt happen. Pretty bad News though. Its getting more and more common for driveers to stop if they injure a spectator nowadays.

Stopped the Rally!!

Thats a big step, especially from what sounds like a silly mistake on the boys behalf. Dont get me wrong, any death is tragic. But if people are on the roads when a rally is on, something is bound to happen.


There was a period when no deaths seemed to happen due to accidents, but theyre gettin common again in recent years. Specially now as cars are slowly getting faster and more like the banned group B cars of the 80's. Organisers had better start taking note I think.

Everytime you go to a rally, you hav the opportunity to buy programs, with coompetitor lists etc etc...

From all my years of watching rallies, every single one ive seen is platered with Dos and Do Nots, to keep the spectators safe. Theyre only simple guides, such as not standing on the outside of corners etc etc...

A death is still a tragedy. Ive no idea how exactly the one in Donegal happened, if anyone could shed any light ??
