Massive crash involving five cars during the start of Heat 2 on a Youngtimer race weekend at Padborg Park, Denmark. All involved drivers were uninjured.
The crash was initiated when the yellow M3 in front of the Volvo missed the upshift to 2nd gear and lost momentum. The sudden difference in speed caused the Volvo driver to seek the outside lane. No one could have anticipated how the situation evolved.
