This is not your usual per­fectly ex­e­cuted im­age with awe­some com­po­si­tion and great use of the avail­able light, but that doesn’t mean the im­age is any less strik­ing. With the sum­mer roadie sea­son upon us, we thought it would serve as a good re­minder to slow down and and take it easy out there. It was cap­tured by Glen Perry, who came across the crash site early in the morn­ing, and thank­fully the oc­cu­pants — who had fled the scene — sur­vived. But the poor Pre­lude would cer­tainly never see an­other road trip af­ter be­ing split in half by a power pole. “Speed is the likely cause as the car has rounded a left-hand bend, spun and launched over a kerb, slid side­ways for 80 me­tres then col­lected a power pole and, well, the pic­tures tell the rest,” Perry ex­plained. So just re­mem­ber to slow down out there, and keep the rac­ing on the track.
