Fifth Gear crew involved in serious crash

Sometimes accidents happen high performance machines are pushed to their limits. Recently such an incident occurred in England. A popular television star, John Barrowman, was filming a slot for the English automotive program Fifth Gear when he and co-driver Tiff Needell were involved in a very serious crash in which their rally prepped Subaru went end over end multiple times before paramedics pulled Barrowman and Needell out, and removed shattered glass from Barrowman’s eye before he was taken to hospital.

The £120,000 Impreza slid down a verge, flipped four times and almost went into a lake at the bottom of the hill, luckily both of the television stars survived the crash suffering only minor cuts and bruises.

Well that wasn’t such a bad crash. It could have been the navigation mistakes. Some kind of misunderstanding between the two perhaps. Anyways, as long as they are fine and that they have showed it to the public, back to normal. It wouldn’t be a great show if they didn’t show this crash BTWIMHO.

I’d say an S13 would take corners better with a stock suspension. The only problem would be its power deficit but then given the eibachs and the SR20 spooling 300+rwhp in your S13, the Mustang doesn’t stand a chance. LOL!

HAha. Mustangs and sharp corners do not go together. Those guys were probably trying to copy the American drifting dude who uses a Mustang. Morons.
