Rally Car Worker Gets Hit in the Groin With Debris (GIF)

rally car worker debris to the groin

Working trackside at a rally car race can be awfully dangerous at times.  The biggest worry one faces would have to be getting hit by an out-of-control vehicle that is traveling a high speeds.  And coming in at a close second is the fear of getting pelted in the groin by rocks and other debris that is sent flying from beneath the car’s tires.
