Thank God they both walked away from that :eek:

That is truely amazing they both got loose and went towards each other... at the same point on the track too
the car on the left hand lane ( not from our vantage point ) seemed to lose traction from where the concrete transitions to asphalt and the other driver seeing his competitor wiping out and a possible collision as he was crossing the lane, locked up his brakes and veered in to him and then the big ouch.
That's the clearest sound of a racing accident I have ever heard. They must have had a mike right on the track or above where the camera was?? Glad to see all were OK.
glad they both walked away. just goes to show why we need safety equipment.

also from the video looks like the left car locked the wheels up trying to avoid the wreck
