Gaping wound

I just found this photo. This is a shot taken after the Shanghai round of the V8 Supercars. This car ran over a heavy steel drain cover that was poking up. It ripped up the bottom of the front splitter and the bottom of the drivers seat, both made of carbon fiber, and cracked the roll cage in half. The driver was fine and this is a photo of him looking up through the hole in the bottom. Enjoy!
