Polish authorities recreate horror Kubica crash

Jul.5 (GMM) Polish authorities have recreated the kind of accident that earlier this year seriously injured formula one driver Robert Kubica.

Renault's Kubica suffered horror injuries during a minor Italian rally in February when arm-co barriers skewered his Skoda.

Near-identical Skoda Fabias was used for the recreation in Poland, where they were shot at 110kph against the arm-co at a 20 degree angle, and then compared to the same crash on a stretch of arm-co that was properly installed.

The footage can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_5MGNUIvKc
