It’s very rare to see race cars crashing so heavily they clear the catch fencing and barriers, but that’s exactly what happened during race three of the Toyota Finance 86 Championship.
Following a hefty crash in race one when a driver didn’t “leave-a-da-space” while battling in the Toyota Finance 86 Championship, wheel-to-wheel contact caused an even bigger shunt the next day.
Michael Scott’s Toyota GT86 made contact with Matt Lockwood’s race car at the Pukekohe Park Raceway in New Zealand and flipped onto its roof with two laps to go.
With absolutely no control, Scott’s car slid into the gravel, dug in and flipped multiple times before launching over the fence and barrier.
It eventually came to rest upside down on the other side of the fence. The race was red flagged for the incident.
The commentary team confirmed in the video above that Scott was OK – thankfully – but he was transferred to a local hospital for checks.
