Kiwi driver Chris van der Drift was lucky to survive this accident in the Superleague Formula in 2010, after becoming airborne and hitting an overbridge on a high speed section of the Brands Hatch circuit.

van der Drift made a full recovery and can now be seen racing in numerous categories including European GT and our very own V8 SuperTourers.
