Here's the Save of the Year

High speed spin on one of the narrowest tracks in the world and no big crash?


The Macau Grand Prix street course is one of the tightest in all of motorsports. It makes Monaco look like a wide open parking lot. It's also been home to some of the nuttiest crashes in motorsports, like or this weekend's for F3 driver Sophia Floersch. Miraculously, she lived, but needed a and get a bone shard away from spinal cord. Her outlook for recovery is positive.

On the other end of the spectrum, the race also saw the save of the year in the WTCR event from driver Yann Ehrlacher. Ehrlacher made in a braking zone and spun towards the wall.

He likely thought there was no recovery, that he'd be triggering a massive pileup early in the race. But, somehow, Ehrlacher lightly tapped the wall and made a full 360. And then he made the corner as people crashed around him. Ehrlacher didn't lose a position. He just continued like nothing happened.

Here it is from outside:

And here's an interior view:

Onboard with me for a 360° at 160 kph, touch the wall, catch it back and loose no places 😅 I can probably go to the “save of the year awards” 🇲🇴🏁
