Wow, another massive crash involving an Audi R18 at LeMans. The Ferrari of Rob Kauffman moved over on the Audi of Mike Rockenfeller, the Audi ended up in the ARMCO and was DESTROYED. Reports are that Rocky was able to get out of the car himself and walk away from the car. This was another vicious, violent crash; thank God it seems that Rocky is going to be OK.
A lot of debate has ensued about amateur drivers in the GT cars. I think you can definitely argue the amateur angle on this crash because even though Kauffman is a GTE Pro car, he definitely doesn’t fit the definition of a pro driver. On the other hand you can’t use the amateur angle on the McNish/Beltoise crash; Beltoise is a professional driver and just don’t see where that crash was his fault.
