Pontiac Sunfire flies off Pikes Peak cliff!

Watch a rally car fall off Pikes Peak

Matt Hardigree — Bobby Regester raced his modified Pontiac Sunfire to victory at Pikes Peak in the past, but this weekend he made a small miscalculation and literally drove off a mountain. It is one of the scariest crashes you'll hopefully only have to ever see here.

Pikes Peak rewards fearless driving and punishes it in dramatic fashion.

Climbing a narrow path at speeds exceeding 100 mph along the edge of the mountain tests the limits of both car and driver. Regester, despite having a lot of experience driving the mountain, reached the limit of one or both and suffered by crashing down Pikes Peak.

In an example of just how dangerous this can be he lucked out enough to hit a rock, which stopped him from flying over the next crest. Somehow, he walked away from the crash.

From here it might not be that spectacular, but imagine being that guy. I'm sure he thought he was dead.

Judging from the title I thought it was going to be one of those mountain roads that just have a drop cliff not a slope. Still is horrible but the title I immediately though the worse
