    Christ , bit more run off needed there at Brands Hatch isnt there??
    I was bemused that in the pit they are looking at the screens all disappointed and pissed off though trying to hide it...
    I'm like Holy Shit, is he even alive? Enormous speed his body carried into the barrier.
    Minor miracle all he had was a sore finger and broken ankle.

    That just happens sooo fast it's crazy. And there's no saving it.

    Six times and reigning British Superbike champ Shane "Shaky" Byrne took a tumble at the last round at Snetterton. I've not found any footage yet but these are his injuries...

    “I have two bruised lungs, all of my ribs fractured, four broken vertabrae, a broken neck in two places, broken sternum, collarbone, multiple other back fractures, fortunately no paralysis which was a big bonus as paralysis was a major issue and concern,” said Byrne.

    Er, speedy recovery?

    There’s been a second awful crash this weekend at the Spa 24. No footage yet, and I doubt any will be released or found. Some photos have been leaked though.

    Incredibly lucky that the Lamborghini is LHD and the Bentley is RHD.

    What the hell?! Where did she come from?

    Also, I misread and thought you said the first 7 or 8 seconds of the video.
    "What's so special about this?"

    Was going to post that the other day. Saw the title ‘Horrible Crash’ and was wondering when it was going to happen, and then I noticed the car was split in half...

    If you time it right. You can have the car lifting off, then if you can follow the path the car would fly past as it disappears from shot, then have your Mike Tyson gif start again. It looks like he was watching the crash, and his head follows where the car would go as if he was watching the crash. Then grins.

    How can anyone be that quick into the corkscrew. Has to be a brake failure.
