This is the big weekend for V8 Supercar racing in Australia, with the action having started yesterday. But already there has been two crashes that have brought the races to a stop, with the first one yesterday, when Chaz Mostert’s V8 supercar slammed into the wall barriers up on the mountain, taking out a fire Marshall box and injuring five. Both he and one of the marshals had to be airlifted to hospital. Today, in one of the support touring car classes, there was the second crash down Conrad straight, when Damien Flack slid off the road and rolled his car till it disintegrated. Thankfully he was taken to hospital and is said to be okay.
The big race is tomorrow, live on the Ten network Australia.
