This happened at this year’s X-Games. Pedal to the metal next time, don’t be afraid, guys 😀



Here is the video where Dave Mirra flips his Mitsubishi.

edit: Video says “Dave Mirra big rally crash” but the driver was Andrew Comrie-Picard while Dave Mirra was in Subaru.

Here is better video where Dave Mirra also crashed Subaru into the wall in the same race. His Subaru was damaged so he had huge problems to steer the car.

    i thought it was the other guy not dave mirra? and if you throttle it too much wouldn’t you end up going over the jump and just bottoming out the whole car? which seems to be a more painful land IMO.

    You are right! It was other driver, Andrew Comrie-Picard. Video totally confused me.

    I think that Picard should go little faster and he wouldn’t crashed. Commentator also mentioned that Picard had the same problem with that jump last year where he was short. This year he didn’t even practice this jump.
