If ever there is an opportunity for all hell to break loose during a car race, it is at the start. The limits of physics are being tested as clutches are popped and tires scrabble for traction as drivers do their best to launch harder than the next guy. Then of course there is the jockeying for position as drivers aim for holes or try to block that guy who got the jump from the row behind.
At the start of the ADAC GT Masters race at Oschersleben over the weekend, things went all sorts of crazy. The worst part of the incident was when the #11 Audi R8 of Nick Thiim hit the wall on driver’s right. The car then dug in and began a series of barrel rolls. Fortunately all of the drivers involved were ok. The same can’t be said about team’s bank accounts.
