    Miracle escape at Brands Hatch

    Mon Jul 19 11:30AM
    [​IMG] Drivers and marshalls alike made a miraculous escape at Brands Hatch after a racing car flew out of control and flipped over crash barriers.
    Seat Leon Eurocup driver Francisco Carvalho collided with fellow drivers as they went wheel-to-wheel round a corner at the Kent circuit, and was knocked off the track.
    With Carvalho unable to regain control his car was smashed into the metal crash barriers, causing it to flip into the air and spin round several times before flipping over the barriers towards a group of race marshalls.
    The marshalls fled in terror, and thankfully managed to get out of the way of the wildly flipping car before it came to a stop.
    And for Carvalho there was even better news to ease his bumps and bruises: with the race red flagged, half-points were awarded based on the standings at the end of the previous lap - meaning that the Portuguese driver was credited with finishing fourth and recording the fastest lap of the race!

    Its hard to believe some1 got out of this ALIVE!!!!!
