There is nothing like driving near a winery during a Saturday afternoon in France but driver Petter Solberg actually drove through a winery during a rally car competition.

Solberg was competing in the Rallye de France when he lost control of his Ford car near a steep turn.

As Petter attempted to re-gain control of the vehicle, he drove through parts of a winery near the course and eventually came to stop when his car collided with a concrete pole:

Solberg’s collision caused electricity to be knocked out in the area and happened to knock out Petter as well.

    He sure drove a long ways through the fields before he hit the pole. If he was knocked out how did he manage to drive away? And the power pole he knocked over came pretty close to hitting some spectators. Yikes.
