Ex-England footballer crashes Morgan

Watch: Luther Blissett rolls a Roadster lightweight at Silverstone. Looks painful.

This is former Watford and England striker, Luther Blissett, crashing a Morgan Lightweight racer. Massively.

After attempting a hitherto unexplored sideways-inside-curb line through Village corner at Silverstone during an all-celeb charity race, the car launched into the air and rolled three times before landing on its wheels. Thankfully, Luther walked away unharmed.

Says Blissett: "I sat there and thought to myself, ‘it's gonna go.' And it just went over."

All of the 14 celebrities that entered the race at last weekend's Silverstone Classic festival had undergone special training. After the crash, Rick Parfitt Jnr went on to win first place followed by Heston Blumenthal and Brendan Cole.
