    I found this on a car forum I belong to. Man that photographer better go buy a lottery ticket as he's one lucky SOB.

    Here is a video of a friend of ours, Clarke Fiddes from New Zealnd. He just bought the car from a guy in PA. I don't think he has made a total of 10 passes in the car because of tranny problems. Their race season is just getting started. They also sent me some photos. What a bummer!!

    If you look close, there is a guy video taping the race on a platform at the point of impact. The photographer walked away. Clarke had to be cut out of the car, and air lifted to the hospital. He was released with minor injuries. All he remembers is reaching to pull the chute, then he woke up as they were cutting him out bof the car. They still do not know what caused the crash.
