The man, who reportedly fell off a short wall separating the fan zone from the rally track, incredibly emerged unscathed from the episode after scrambling clear just as the Citroen driven by Mads Ostberg sped past.
“In the end I was probably a meter or half a meter away from him,” hero driver Ostberg told Autosport.
“He came down the wall a meter from the race line, if he fell down half a second later there would have been no way to avoid it.”
Lucky son of a gun.
