This is one of the craziest crashes you'll ever see. The racing was cutthroat at Virginia International Raceway yesterday as the American Le Mans Series hit the circuit for the Oak Tree Grand Prix. That level of competitiveness leads to , and , well...that can lead to some hairy stuff.
Which is the only way you can describe the crash involving Marco Holzer in the #48 Paul Miller Racing Porsche 911 GT3 RSR and the #31 NGT Motorsports GT3 Cup car driven by Eduardo Cisneros.
Holtzer drives into Cisneros as if he doesn't even see him, causing both cars to leave the circuit and barrel full tilt towards a tire barrier. Cameraman Rich White demonstrates that his testicles are both elephantine and made of cast iron as he has the presence of mind to catch Holzer's impact, pan to follow the GT car as it spins off into the grass, then flip the camera back the other way in time to catch Cisneros' car— fully airborne after its initial impact—as it sticks the landing on top of the tire wall, right next to the camera.
Miraculously, no one—not Holzer, not Cisneros, not Rich White, and no one in the adjacent marshal station—was hurt.
And if you think I'm overstating just how nuts this was, I simply ask you to watch it all unfold:
In the war on tire barriers at VIR this weekend, the tires went undefeated, and fortunately, drivers went unscathed.
