    2010 SEAT Leon Eurocup - car flips into crowd

    Seat touring car flips into crowd at Brands Hatch over weekend

    According to our English cousins, Portugese driver Francisco Carvalho had a bit of a mishap at this weekend's World Touring Car Championship event at Brands Hatch. Carvalho was competing in the Seat Leon Euro Cup Race when he received a nudge from a fellow racer. Instead of losing a position, Carvalho's car was sent veering off of the course and into a crash barrier before bouncing end-over-end and vaulting back over the wall. The crash sent a crowd of race marshals fleeing before the car came to a stop, but amazingly enough, no one was injured. Not even Carvalho.

    That was insane! I can't believe no one was hurt in that. When I saw it flipping toward the track workers it just seemed like it was going to smush them.

    The closest guy to the camera on the barrier side definitely decided to run just in the nick of time. He had to have felt it hit the ground behind him.

    Wow, didn't expect it to roll that much more after hitting the barrier. Could you imagine if you were there.
