Big con­tact in the Tour­ing Car Masters class at the Clip­sal 500

New Zealand Classic Car - - Online This Month -

This isn’t for the faint of heart — see­ing rac­ing greats get tan­gled up on the first lap and sub­se­quently dam­ag­ing a hand­ful of cars isn’t an easy watch. But, as some will say, ‘rub­bing is rac­ing’ and it all went down in the re­cent Tour­ing Car Masters class at the Clip­sal 500 in Ade­laide, South Aus­tralia.

A rolling start had the grid com­ing in hot at the chi­cane, and, although it ini­tially looked like Brad Til­ley’s Speedgas Mus­tang was go­ing to end up in the wall after be­ing tagged, it would be the con­certina ef­fect caused by this in­ci­dent that led Terry Lawlor’s Mus­tang to go wide over the kerb, mak­ing con­tact with the tyre wall and sling­shot­ting back across the pack.
