Audi R8 LMS driver Laurens Vanthoor’s race day at the 2016 FIA GT World Cup Macau Grand Prix went from good to wild when he corrected too far to the inside of a turn, trying to overtake the driver who had just pulled ahead of him, sending him flying into the retaining wall. His car went airborne after impact, then flipped upside down and continued to slide across the track with sparks flying. The red flags came out and the race was called based on the final completed lap, which was the lap previous to the crash, one where Vanthoor still had the lead. The driver was quoted as saying he felt it was a strange way to win the race, but accepted it nonetheless.
