The Robin Hood Rally is a reality show will soon air on the Versus network that pits amateur drivers racing flat out on closed public roads. The only problem with the premise: They’re amateurs! So it’s no surprise that in only the 2nd event out of 10 planned finds one of the drivers airlifted to the hospital with injuries sustained in a crash involving a Corvette Z06, BMW m3 and a Mini Cooper.
Here is the report filed from by The Record Online
Town of Tuxedo — A crash on the racetrack for Robin Hood Rally, a reality TV show and racing contest, severely damaged two cars and sent one man to the hospital with minor injuries.
The driver of a red corvette lost control of his racecar when heading towards the finish line on Warwick Brook Road, which had been closed to normal traffic for the event.
The corvette slammed into a BMW racecar, which was waiting its turn on the track, and then flipped over and landed further down the road. The driver walked away uninjured but the driver waiting in the BMW suffered minor injures and was transported to a local hospital.
The corvette’s left side was ripped apart and the BMW’s front was demolished in the accident.
The 55 drivers participating in the Robin Hood Rally broke for lunch. Officials say they will decide shortly whether or not to continue the event today.
