This terrible incident occurred at Targa Wrest Point 2012 on the Esperance Coast stage. A miscommunication between driver and navigator lead the classic car to its demise.
Both occupants were relatively unharmed, the navigator had a short stint in hospital, but was checked out later that evening.

WrongCall - WRX STI Targa Tasmania Crash - Driver Stephen Bradford & Navigator Paul Dowie
At 6:15 on the video clip everything starts to go wrong! When the navigator
calls "Flat out 10R, Flat Out 10R - Flat Out -Trust Me - Trust Me" you
would be forgiven as a driver to trust the call, even so I asked for the
next corner twice to make sure we were on the notes and received the
following calls from the Navigator: 10R - 10R, 10R Here 120, 10R = whoa
whoa whoa whoa" and a loud Fuck from me as I realise there is no way Im
going to get the car around the sharp 5R. For those who are not familiar
with Tarmac rallying a 10R means keep the foot flat to the floor and dont
lift off (in all these cases the Navigators call needs to be 100% correct).
In this case we were travelling between 160 km/ph and 200 km and if I didnt
hit the brakes as early as I did we would have hit a cattle yard. The
corner was actually a 5 Right (should have been taken at 80 km/ph if the
call had come), we were very lucky we didnt go straight off into the cattle
yard which is to the left of screen as we go off Freeze the video at 5:02
and you will see what I mean. Im pretty impressed with how far I managed to
get the car around the corner between 5:02 and 5:03, otherwise we would
have been in serious trouble if we hit the cattle yard (they have some
serious reinforcement). After I reverse out of the ditch, you will hear the
navigators very late call of 5R at 5:16 on the video.
Luckily the bushes we landed in acted like a net and although the front
spoiler was smashed, the side spoiler ripped off and most of the panels
were scratched, the car was still drivable. Unfortunately on the next clip
you will see the car loses control coming out of the chicane due to the car
loading up on the flat tyre and caused significant damage to the fuel tank
& rear control arms.
At the time of the accident on Stage 7 we were 2nd in Early Modern, which
was a disappointing end to being competitive in the event, as I was hoping
to back up my 2008 Targa Rookie win with a solid result. See other accident
