That’s the Spirit: Rally Fighter Flips Over, Keeps Racing

Rally Fighter Crash 545x300 at Thats the Spirit: Rally Fighter Flips Over, Keeps Racing

If you are not familiar with the Rally Fighter, it is a hard-core American off-roader built by a former Marine, using whatever parts they could get their hands on. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, but it isn’t. Apart from the fact that the Rally Fighter is extremely good fun to drive and race, this thing is also incredibly tough.

That is a fact best shown in the video below. A Rally Fighter ripping off the sand at the Parker 425 off-road race in Arizona flips over and basically gets wrecked, but it’s not even phased. It keeps going like nothing’s happened.


This is called crashing like a boss!
