A tough way to start a rally

Belgian rally driver Thierry Neuville and his navigator Nicolas Gilsoul had a narrow escape during a shakedown stage of the Rallye Deutschland last week.  Their Hyundai i20 WRC went for a high-speed excursion off the road and down a hill through a vineyard.  It was rather spectacular – particularly the view from inside the car, later in the video clip.

I wonder what sort of compensation the farmer will get from Rallye Deutschland for the loss of so many well-established vines?
