All the best to the occupants of the vehicle.

The Porsche was negotiating a section of the rally route on Crows Nest Rd, Port Elliot, about 4.30pm Saturday when the driver lost control, slamming into two trees.

The impact tore the Porsche apart, wrapping it around the tree and spreading debris over the road.

Emergency crews were able to quickly free the driver but worked for over an hour to free the passenger.

Both were flown to Flinders Medical Centre. According to the rally's website, the 1978 Porsche was registered as being driven by Milan Filo and Jason Rowley.

A police spokesman said the occupants a 54-year-old Hallett Cove man and a 46-year-old Enfield man were seriously injured.

"A left-hand-drive 911 Porsche travelling north on Crows Nest Rd has come over a crest in the road and lost control," he said


"The car has gone sideways and hit two trees on the right-hand side the passenger side."

It is understood the driver had serious internal injuries and the passenger sustained injuries to his legs.

Major Crash investigators rushed to the crash site and were last night continuing their investigations. The section of road was last night closed to the public.

The Sunday Mail understands another Porsche and a Ford Focus competing in the event crashed in separate incidents earlier in the day.

In 2009, Gary Tierney and David Carra, from Melbourne, died when their Porsche 911 hit a tree at Forreston, in the Adelaide Hills, during the Classic Adelaide Rally.

In the SA round of the 2010 Australian Rally Championship, three of the competition's top drivers Scott Pedder, Justin Dowel and Matt Selley all crashed out.

Rally organisers last night refused to comment.

OMG, that looks horrendous

 :(
Usually these shots are after emergency crews have cut everything to bits get to the poor souls inside, making the damage look much worse then it was.

Either way, horrible crash, best of luck to all involved, hope they come through without lasting injuries.
