You’d have thought pretty much every motorsport championship would have learned by now that you don’t send course vehicles onto the circuit unless the race has been neutralised. Apparently not.

Following some first lap shenanigans at Zandvoort, a tow truck was pulling a stricken car off the circuit when another car arrived on the scene – at full speed.

Yeah, if that car had arrived a couple of seconds earlier or a touch later that could have been a whole lot worse.
