Mercedes Wipes Out McLaren In Massive GT Open Crash At Catalunya

GT3 cars are incredibly fast but they’re also pretty heavy, and that means that when they crash, they tend to crash big. In the International GT Open at Barcelona the Mercedes AMG GT of Jean Luc Beaubelique lost it under braking and speared in the wall before cannoning into the McLaren 650S of Duncan Tappy, causing severe damage to both cars.

Unsurprisingly both cars were out of the race on the spot, though thankfully the drivers walked away seemingly OK. Luckily for the teams it was the last race of the season, so there’s at least plenty of time for them to get the cars fixed. Still, ouch!
