A race car driver and his co-driver survive a hair-raising crash in Colorado.

The car was ripped to shreds as it plunged down a mountain side during Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Sunday.

The driver reportedly lost control of the car while trying to make a turn.

The car somersaulted down the cliff nearly a dozen times.

This was the driver's first time participating in the treacherous race.

Remarkably both he and the co-driver walked away from the wreck.
