The crash happened at an open track day, something that happens quite often at the ‘ring. This particular track day saw wet conditions and any day where there is dampness on the track it can take a turn for the worst at any moment. The report also said the driver lost control of the car, skidded sideways, and collided with the safety car. Both inside were killed. Two track marshals were also injured while tending to another crash that happens minutes before.
This just goes to show that any track day can turn bad in an instant. Be safe out there.
