When a racing driver’s front-left wheel connects with a rival’s right-rear wheel at a decent speed, you know you’re in for a bad time
Formula 4 United States driver Parker Locke was looking to make a move on the outside of Chris Archinaco during race two at the Homestead-Miami Speedway last month.
But Archinaco moved across and braked earlier than Locke expected. The pair clashed wheels, which pitched Locke’s car into the air and upside down.
Locke’s F4 machine landed the wrong way up before scarily rolling over a few times and landing on whatever wheels were left over.
Fortunately, he was alright but the crash looked absolutely terrifying. A new pair of overalls were probably needed afterwards…
