    Epic crash!

    The Lamborghini Super Trofeo Cup saw a massive accident during Round 4 of the season. The number 22 Gallardo LP560-4 driven by Giorgio Bartocci got off into the gravel on the last turn before the front straight. It's unclear whether Bartocci was nudged by another racer or whether a mechanical failure caused the slide, but either way, the car hit the wall at considerable speed and nearly disintegrated on impact. The driver's side door sprung open as the car slid down the tarmac, and Bartocci could be seen flailing outside the vehicle. When it finally came to a stop, the Raging Bull turned into a raging fireball.

    Bartocci is currently in intensive care with fractured ribs, a broken leg and second-degree burns over 40% of his body.

    That is just terrible to hear. I am happy he survived and I wish him the best in his recovery.

    WOW. I dont understand how the guy was ejected from the car, and I do not understand how the front of that car wasnt reinforced better. Maybe I'm over reacting, but I have never seen a race car fall apart like that. I hope the guy pulls thru to race again, or better live a semi normal life. Prayers for him and his family.
