Massive crash at ALMS race

Video: Luke Hines lucky to escape after monster collision at American Le Mans race…

Lots of high performance cars driven at high speeds with lots of men high on testosterone means a) lots of fun, and b) a very big Health Hazard.

We've witnessed some pretty horrific crashes in motorsport; witness Mark Webber's stratospheric accident at the European GP. Yet despite this constant desensitisation, we still remain largely, erm, sensitive to it.

Especially when it looks like this:

ALMS racer Luke Hines was overtaken at the Mosport raceway in Canada last month but was clipped; a move that sent his Porsche racer straight into the guardrail - and very nearly through it.

Luckily, he emerged without injury.

Now share it...
