Scary V8 Supercar Crash At Barbagallo – rpmGo.com

Yesterday during the Australian V8 Supercar series at Barbagallo a pretty scare accident occurred, before even the first corner. Karl Reindler in his Holden Commodore stalled after the green flag was waved and he was rammed behind by driver Steve Owen. The latter already had reached to almost 95 mph when he hit Karl.

The impact was so powerful that Reindler’s car burst into flames, sending both vehicles into the infield. The good news is that Karl managed to escape with only a couple of minor burns on his face and hands. Owen wasn’t injured at all, but the officials of the race sent him to the medical center after the driver complained of soreness.
