180mph Indy Car Crash

Thankfully and incredibly luckily, no one was injured in this horrific, 180mph Indy Car crash – so we can show it. The venue was the Baltimore GP, and Tony Kannan lost his brakes at the end of one of the straights. Doing 180mph, he hits the back of Helio Castroneves' car, and literally flies over the top: It's terrifying stuff. But the impact with Helio may just have saved his life though, shaving off vital speed, as Kannan himself later professed to on Twitter, saying: "if wasn't for you my friend I wouldn't be here." The marshall was darn lucky too. Look closely beyond the tyre wall. Jees.
