Friday’s Formula Ford morning qualifying practice brought this weekend’s first crash with Shae Davies and Garry Jacobson colliding at the top of Mount Panorama.
Davie’s car stalled and spun at McPhillamy park; left in the middle of the track Jacobson then sideswiped the Spectrum in spectacular fashion.
Anton De Pasquale, Jacobson’s team mate avoided the incident and was slightly shaken up.
“I saw the yellow flag just before I turned left at McPhillamy Park,” De Pasquale told Speecafe.com.
“Garry was ahead of me. He went left. I went right, and I only just missed him. It was a pretty scary moment.”
Davies was cleared of serious injury however Jacobson was airlifted out of the scene with suspected broken bones.
Mount Panorama is sure to provide an exciting but hopefully safe weekend…
