Alexander Rossi Had A Ridiculously Close Call With A Spectator’s Vehicle In The Baja 1000

The Baja 1000 is a bonkers, long-distance, off-road endurance event that’s been around for over 50 years. This year Rossi decided to give it a punt (hey, IndyCar has a long off-season) and quickly found out something he’d probably never have experienced in his career before – a car coming the wrong way.

It wasn’t a course vehicle though, or even a disoriented competitor – just a fan who thought it’d be neat to drive down a road filled with blind crests in the wrong direction.

And from another angle…

(function(d, s, id) {
var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
js = d.createElement(s); = id;
js.src = ‘’;
fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

The sweary reaction of the fans (especially the beer-throwing) says it all…
