Frightening crash rocks Bathurst 1000 race day

1 month ago 15

Possibly the most frightening crash of the Bathurst 1000 lead-up rocked the S5000 series on Sunday morning.

It occurred during the fourth round of the S5000s when the cars of Aaron Cameron and Luis Leeds made contact on The Chase.

Both drivers emerged from the crash unscathed, but not before their cars collided and went flying off the track, forcing the race to be red-flagged and declared.

"Another hold-your-breath moment!" said commentator Richard Craill on the Fox Sports broadcast.

"They're both off the track at high speed, it's all over, big crash!

"It's been such a big talking point all weekend.

"Side by side at the kink. That's huge!"

Co-commentator Chad Neylon labelled the crash "incredible".

It came just one day after another scary accident occurred at The Chase, involving S5000 drivers Joey Mawson and Jordan Boys.
