    The Ant is alive & well. All he had after that were 2 broken Vertebrae.

    Towards the end of the race he tweeted this

    So all he had was a broken back? Is that all....

    Glad he ain't dead though!

    Sheesh, that will leave a mark. Glad both drivers are going to recover.

    Side note: anyone on here who was part of the Clubdub Forza 4 group meets should know this corner VERY well. I can't remember how many times Zach plowed into that corner at 250mph. I seem to remember a certain black H1 ramming people around there as well.

    It's always been the case that once air gets under a prototype it'll go sailing. What an impact. I don't even know if making the corner such that there is more than one line through it would help or hurt, it might just make people go in quicker still.

    The "dorsal fin" was supposed to stop the sail effect. They also added a chicane to bring the top speed down from 250mph to 200mph and shaved the "knoll" that sent Mark Webber flying in a certain Merc GTR.

    Watching it live my emotions were summed up in another video that captured the reaction of one of Ant's pit crew(posted below at the 10sec mark) .

    After watching last years incident involving McNish I suppose anything is possible. The safety of these cars is truly amazing. But even if the car remained intact,the G-forces generated could alone cause major damage.

    A couple of broken vertebrae for him could be compared to a bruise I might sustain falling off a bicycle.
