Daytona High Speed Crash - Porsche GT3
A Porsche GT3 crashes at Daytona International Speedway following a rear
right tire blowout at 150+ MPH coming out of NASCAR Turn #4. Car
immediately veered out of control and crashed into inside wall with massive
damage. The Sparco racing seats, Schroth harnesses, Hans device and helmet
contributed to my walking away with minor injuries. Incident occurred at
PBOC HPDE October 2012.
Here's what happened:
Coming out of NASCAR turn #4 (the same turn that that took Dale Earnhardt's
life), I was accelerating past 150 MPH when I felt a shudder in the rear of
the car followed by an immediate strong bumping / vibration throughout the
car. While I immediately lifted from the accelerator, the blowout of my
right rear tire (Hoosier R6's) caused the car to immediately veer to the
left (just after passing one car and just prior to reaching a second car).
As the car headed towards the inside wall, it was in an out of control
spin. After making one complete spin, the car crashed into the inside wall
on the front left corner of the car and then ricocheted back against the
wall on the rear left corner of the car -- spinning around a couple more
times before coming to a stop.

Porsche 997 GT3 MKII Crashes at 160mph
We got this email from one of our customer's in France who is an avid race
car driver. His email was thanking us for the parts we had sold him, not
because they look great on his car (although they do). But because those
parts helped save his life. Here's the email he sent us,
"Hello, I'm completely a fan of your page. I live in France and bought a
carbon intake from you for my 997 gt3 mkII. Unfortunately this, (the video
below,) is what happened on the Catalunya F1 track last week. There was oil
on the track, and I crashed my GT3 at more than 160 MPH. I'm safe, thanks
to the car and the walls of the track (shock absorption). I want to show
your fans my video, because that shows that a car prepared (roll bar,
harness, buckets) can save lives. I will invest in a Hans system."
The Hans System is a invaluable product to any real racer. The HANS device
(Head and Neck Support) was developed to prevent neck injuries and skull
fractures by restraining your head from snapping forward in the event of an
accident. The HANS device is a semi-hard collar made of carbon fiber and
Kevlar. It is held onto the upper body by a harness worn by the driver. Two
flexible tethers on the collar are attached to the helmet to prevent the
head from snapping forward or to the side during a wreck.
If you watch the video you can see during the crash where a HANS device
would have come in handy. With all that said, we are happy that he was able
to walk away from the wreck without any serious injuries. This isn't a PSA
on safety but it's important to equip your car and yourself when doing any
kind of racing. If you're interested in learning more about making your
race car safe email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Racing's only fun if you're alive to enjoy it, race smart!
