How does this happen? You are racing along and all of a sudden, out of nowhere, a car comes at you going in the opposite direction in reverse...A true WTF? moment.
Check out how this, one of the most amazing close calls of all time, went down after the jump!
Amazing. Cameron McConville's Holden Commodore had a brake line severed in the first shunt with Steve Owen. Amazingly there is no barrier at the end of the gravel trap, just a straight shot out to the racing circuit as it folds around.
Sure enough the car just sails over the gravel trap, onto the grass, across the tarmac and finally comes to rest on the far side, narrowly missing a terrifying crash with David Besnard's car. I'm sure both Mr Besnard and Mr. McConville needed a change of undies after that one. Philip Island circuit safety designer instead could use a spanking!.
