2 Fabian Coulthard 2010 Bathurst 1000

First Lap of the Great Race and a tire blowout at almost 300 km/h for Coulthard coming into the chase ends up with him rolling 6 times through the chase before coming to a stop.

Going so fast that when things go wrong, they go wrong big time. - JarradGhent2014

That is amazing that he did not end up with brain damage

This is way bigger than lowndes at Calder, sure that incident was big but it's overrated, this one was the biggest race of the year and much quicker, and there was much more damage.

Reindler stalled on the start line and gets rammed up the rear by Steve Owen at almost 200 km/h.

5 Jason Bargwanna 2002 Phillip Island
