Crashing Your Exotic on a Rally is, Like, So Hot Right Now
In case you were wondering why I don’t drive on rallies anymore, here’s why. Just a month ago I was reading about the Lamborghini Murcielago that was crashed in the first hour of this year’s Gumball3000, followed by the Ferrari 458 (ironically wrapped in a BetSafe livery) that crashed the next day.
Today we have a news story from Eastern Texas, which just so happens to be where the Gold Rush Rally was today. According to the news report, the car, a McLaren MP4-12C Spider, (which may or may not have been a rental) went “through a ditch, under two fences, and airborne” before coming to rest halfway inside a storage unit. It’s just fortunate that all the storage lockers had been paid up, or else Barry would have come fought Dave Hester for whatever part of the Macca went clear through the door. The local news quotes the driver as Ben Chen, (Was it this Ben Chen?That would make this story so much more funny than it already is). **Update: It totally is the same Ben Chen**Fortunately, no one was hurt and the person who crashed the car is rich enough to afford another
hooker girlfriend who doesn’t know he crashed a McLaren on a rally. And now the video:
