Woah, that's insane! Cartwheeling just out of the blue and the Audi barely getting away unscathed. Pretty wild stuff. Do you know what happened to the driver of the UFO?

Yup, I noticed that too and was going, hm, almost looks like an open-wheeler now, maybe they should convert altogether and that flying stunt wouldn't have happened in the first place due to the aero. :P

That crash reminded me ALOT of the Mercedes CLR flip at LeMan's in '99:

I remember watching it live and was like "Did I just see what I thought I saw"?? :shock:
