Rally Car Narrowly Avoids Tractor in this Crazy Video

To be a successful rally driver, you have to have good instincts and quick reflexes. Being a little crazy doesn't hurt either. Belgian racer, Thierry Neuville, definitely fits the profile, and his skills were put to the test during a practice run through German farmlands last week.

As his Hyundai i20 WRC rounded the corner, a tractor pulled out onto the road, unaware of the trial taking place. Neuville reacted quickly, and was able to bring the small hatchback to a stop in less than four seconds. It was a close call, but thankfully no one was hurt. It's a good example of why racing should be left to the professionals. Check out the suspenseful video, below.

Interesting note: The i20 WRC is based off the i20 hatchback, a car that is not available in North America because the Accent was chosen for that market, instead.
