A fan is fined for throwing sand and causing a crash

15 months and payment of the repair of the car for a spectator who threw sand around a curve and caused a participant in the Rally Princesa de Asturias to leave the road.


Whoever does it pays for it. A spectator had the happy idea of throwing sand in a curve of the Rally Princesa de Asturias in 2019. As a result, one of the participants suffered an accident. Outraged, the race director filed a complaint and justice has just failed in an exemplary manner: a 15-month fine for complying with social services and the obligation to pay for the damaged car.

Although luckily there are fewer and fewer unconscious dirtying the curves to cause cars to skid in rallies, there are still some out there loose. In the Monte Carlo Rally, it was common to see unbelievers throw snow in the curves, and in Spain there have been some notorious cases, such as the Rías Baixas de Vigo Rally in 1998, which appeared oil in some of the curves and had to be canceled. or the Rally of Cantabria that a group of pilots who had been excluded for cheating tried to do the same.

That is why this condemnation is very important, which could make the heartless who give a damn about the safety of rally participants think twice. In the case of the Rally Princesa de Asturias it was settled with abandonment, but luckily there were no personal consequences for the driver and co-driver. The question is, what would have happened if any of the crew died? Better not even think about it.
