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