Renault's Kubica suffered horror injuries during a minor Italian rally in February when arm-co barriers skewered his Skoda.

Near-identical Skoda Fabias was used for the recreation in Poland, where they were shot at 110kph against the arm-co at a 20 degree angle, and then compared to the same crash on a stretch of arm-co that was properly installed.

The footage can be seen at YouTube.
