Racing Driver Amazingly Lucky To Be Alive

So are a number of the spectators.

It’s never good to have a tire blowout in any car. With racecars, the added speed and lower ground clearance compounds the problem, but there are times during a race when it can be salvageable. Having a blowout in the middle of the Eau Rouge turn at Spa Francorchamps is not one of those moments. And that is exactly what happened to Marcello Marateotto during the Radical Europmasters race. The car flew off the track immediately.

Miraculously, the driver wasn’t hurt, and there were sufficient barriers in place that meant no spectators were hurt either.
