Seventeen Karters Just Aquaplaned Into A Wall

Fortunately, all those involved in the red-flagged session came away uninjured

[OH GOD WHAT JUST BLOODY HAPPENED AAAAA SHITE THIS IS AWFUL THEY'RE ALL STILL SLIDING]

It's wet in the first round of the FIA Karting European Championship in Belgium (live above), which means there are bound to be spinning mishaps. Not this much, though.

The remarkable part of this is that this all happened during a qualifying heat, and saw no less than seventeen drivers slipping off the track and into the wall. Even more remarkable was that no one injured through all this.

At the least, it's a tamer version of what used to happen in full-size, as these videos show. Aquaplaning is scary enough; at these speeds, it's pretty hairy.

  • I remember the last video at Watkins Glen. I built the 46 Corvette that hit The Racers Group Porsche. Crazy scene.

    • This I’m now interested in. How hellacious was the rebuild, and what’s it like to work there?

    • Sorry, I should have been more specific. I built the car originally to campaign in GrandAm, Baughman bought the car from us when we built new ones and campaigned it himself.

  • One of my favorites is from Nurburgring 24hr race a few years back. There was a nasty storm a brewing, and even dumped some hail that would eventually redflag the race. But not before about 10 cars were in the wall and many more scattered about off the track.

    • I remember that time, too, the race that had an actual hailstorm that pretty much halved the race time.
