What happens when you have a toe link failure flat out at 110 mph? Uh, it's not great.

You're watching 17-year-old Lotus Elise Trophy racer Ryan Savage at Donnington. He's a capable driver, having recently set the fastest lap for any Elise Trophy/Lotus Cup car at that track.


But when your car gives out on you, sometimes you're just along for the ride. In this case that ride ended with a 100 mph impact into a concrete wall.

Savage hurt his shoulder and suffered a slight concussion, according to his team's YouTube uploader, and will be back racing soon.
