If this video doesn’t make you cringe or gasp in horror, you’ve got ice water in your veins because we did both the first time we watched it. We’re not sure what country it was filmed in, but judging by the cars, this seems to be in Europe somewhere. As you’ll see this video starts at the beginning of the race when the green flags drops and the competitors speed off the grid. There’s heavy traffic with lots of slicing and dicing as their always is in road races like this.
The wild thing about the wreck is just how quickly it all goes to crap for the two guys involved. There was simply no way to see this coming…literally. While accelerating heard in traffic the car where the camera is mounted in decides to break for the center of the track as the competition seems to be spreading out. They are spreading out because there is a disabled car sitting dead in the water, right there in the middle of the course. Our guy doesn’t recognize this and is hard on the gas when the crowd separates and reveals the road block, which he plows into with stunning ferocity. His car ends up on its side, blazing. The driver hops up and climbs out of the car. We’re sure hoping the other dude is OK.
