Radical SR8 Racer Has a Very, Very Close Call with a Truck

Taking to the race circuits to push your own and your vehicle’s limits is far better and smarter than doing the same on a public road, but it does not mean that you are completely safe since, well, you are pushing the limits, and there’s always the unexpected. For track racer Miguel Villagomez, the unexpected came when his Radical SR8 (yes, that’s the British sports car that holds the second best lap time on the Nürburgring at 6:55, behind only the SR8 LM that did the same in 6:48), jolted while driving over a road patch on the Autódromo de Tocancipá in Colombia. Villagomez lost control of the SR8 and entered the grass at speed. That wouldn’t have been a problem if there wasn’t a crane truck parked inside… Luckily, the Radical stopped inches (if not less) before smashing into the large vehicle.
