Unfortunately at this years 2013 Rally America championship final event, LSPR 2013 (Lake Superior Performance Rally) a credentialed member of the media ran into the middle of the road by instinct to avoid being hit and he ended up jumping on my hood and rolling off the side of the car while I luckily got to 5mph~ before hitting him and was at a complete stop by the time he was rolling off the hood. Just 5 turns later we rolled very fast ending our rally quickly due to my lack of mental focus. we should have backed off and regrouped mentally but it all happened too fast and was over before we knew it.

We post this in hopes that media will NOT be given access to places that can get them in situations like this, it isn't worth someone dying over before we get new rules implemented.

We mean no harm to the sport of rally in america or anywhere else and we're sorry if this has any negative effect on the sport. We refuse to kill someone over a photo or video and we sincerely hope they just implement new rules for media and we can all put this in the past.

We love rally, it's our lives and we can only hope that you can understand why we had to post this footage, we had to think about it a few days before coming to the conclusion to post it but this incident should not be hidden and swept away unfixed. as soon as we saw nothing being done about the incident we know this had to be posted.
