Daly of US unscathed after big crash in Monaco
Saturday, May 26, 2012
MONACO (AP) -- American driver Conor Daly walked away unharmed from a spectacular crash during a GP3 series race in Monaco on Saturday.
The 20-year-old Lotus driver was coming out of a tunnel near Monaco's harbor when he hit the back of Russian driver Dmitry Suranovic as he tried to pass him.
Suranovic appeared to drift over to the left to block Daly, causing Daly's car to clip the back of Suranovic and send it rearing upward instantly.
Daly's car was almost vertical as it slid before hitting the top of the catch fencing on the left, almost flipping right over. It skidded into the barriers on the other side.
Amazingly, Daly walked away unhurt and no track officials were injured.
