Lightning Reactions Saves Racecar Driver from 150mph Crash

Racing driver narrowly avoids avoids catastrophe in the wet and fog at Spa.

Reacting instantly to unforeseen obstacles on the track can make the difference between a fatal crash and avoiding catastrophe, as this footage clearly demonstrates.

Conditions that day at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium were described as wet and foggy. So when coming out of Eau Rouge at 150mph, one of the most unnerving turns in motorsport, the last thing 19-year-old driver Dino Zamparelli wanted to see was a group of bunched up cars appear out of the mist. Thanks to his lightning reactions, not only did the Formula 2 pilot escape a potential pileup with negligible damage, but he passed four cars in the process. With skills like that, it shouldn't be long before we see Dino make the jump to F1.
