Rod, then 64, walked away from the crash without a scratch!
The roll cage was a custom one he designed and fabricated, and it did its job well. When the Mini stopped tumbling, it lay on its mangled roof. Rod unbuckled his harnesses, then promptly landed on his head and tumbled out the now-open door. Rod said he had some bruises from the safety harnesses – and that it was quite a ride – to say the least…
UPDATED 2012: The Travel Channel did a great feature looking back on the 2003 accident, including interviews with Rod Davis and Alan Berry, as well as Jeff Garstecki, who supplied the in-car camera that caught the amazing footage of Rod’s Mini flipping 5.5 times. The feature also includes computer simulation of the crash, other videos of the aftermath, including the tow truck hauling the severely broken Mini away. Also shown is vintage-racing footage, and some old photos from from the long-time racing buddies. It’s six minutes long – and very well done!
