Sophia Floersch Massive F3 Macau Grand Prix crash

Good grief! I can't even wreck that bad intentionally on some of my racing sims.

Glad she's in decent shape all considering (spine fracture), but a few cameramen were hurt as well.

That race often sees such mayhem. Amazing she survived that. Looked like she was moving way faster than everyone else.

So,

Thing 1: Holy backwards flying F3 Car Batman
Thing 2: Thank God they had that steel barrier up on that observation platform (makes you wonder if they anticipated that type of crash
Thing 3: How the faulk did that car end up backwards, airborne at that speed? A long shot of the track coming towards the corner would've been nice.

Glad everyone is alive, could've been worse.

Not to make fun of the incident, but the side of the car going to backwards through the air says, "Dare to be Different." I guess that goal was achieved.

Wowowee. such a violent crash. Glad to hear everyone is ok albeit serious injury to the driver.

Perhaps the cars are too fast for the track? Don't they have a proper track to hold the event in?
