Most Amazing Porsche Crash To NOT Result In Death

The video above's a splice of a couple different views of a spectacular crash on the first lap of a Porsche challenge race at Thruxton, "the fastest track" in the UK, that took place over this past weekend. Fortunately, unlike some Porsche crashes — nobody was killed or even seriously injured. I bet the driver even stuck around and answered questions posed by track authorities.

DISCUSSION

Wow, that didn't look like it was going to happen. Did his inside front wheel somehow climb up the wheel/bodywork of the other car or something? These are GT3's though, so no power to the front, right?

I guess it doesn't take a lot of force to lift the front-end of a lightened 911.
