Massive Crash at LeMans in the First Hour

Archives

Allan McNish in the #3 Audi R-18 attempted to pass his teammate Timo Bernhard in the #1 Audi R-18 and the #58 Luxury Racing Ferrari 458 at the Dunlop Bridge and it resulted in a massive crash.  McNish slid across the gravel trap and slammed into the ARMCO barrier, spinning around in the air and ending up upside down on the track side of the barrier.

Miraculously, the car didn’t get over the ARMCO barrier or it would have been a tragedy. Even more of a miracle is that none of the marshals or photographers behind the barrier were injured by the flying debris and parts.
