The very first race on the freshly renovated Circuit Zandvoort has been marred by a scary crash from a Porsche 991 GT3 Cup car.
Details of the accident are murky but it is believed that the Porsche was lapping slower traffic when he collided with another car before being sent skywards at high speed.
Thankfully the driver got out by himself, though he did look a bit winded. Reports suggest that he was taken away in an ambulance to the circuit’s medical centre but cleared of any serious injury.
The circuit underwent major restoration works ahead of Formula One’s return to the venue for the Dutch Grand Prix later this year.
