As a sports photographer I'm most concerned for the Marshals and the Photographers in the debris zone. The car was over the wall and seemed to slapped back be an unseen hand but high speed debris clearly hit several photographers who immediately fell to the ground. Lets hope their injuries are not serious.

I think the initial report was that all of the photographers are ok. I wouldn't think that they would allow people to stand in that area again.

Sicking crash though. After getting over the initial shock of seeing the car almost crush 4 or 5 people my heart suck for Allan. He's a very lucky man. Not too long ago that would have been a fatal accident. Good job by Audi for making a safe car.

That was very nasty,bits of Audi and it's wheel flying over the fence where the marshals and photographers were all stood and wouldn't have stood a chance if anything hit them.Mc Nish should feel lucky he didn't cause a few deaths driving like that.He was going way too fast through the curve while slower cars were going through,you could see how fast he was going when he flew past the other Audi.

I was so hoping the #58 Ferrari 458 Italia would win the GTE-Pro race, but Allan McNish had to take it out.

Well, at least the Ferrari 430 looks like its capable of winning the GTE-Am race.

Endurance racing is racing too. People dont want to see a procession. McNish had every right to race like he did. But when you take risks, you have a chance to go off. **** happens.
