The Lamborghini Super Trofeo Cup saw an ugly accident during Round 4 of the season. The number 22 Gallardo LP560-4, driven by Giorgio Bartocci, got off into the gravel on the last turn before the front straight. It's unclear whether Bartocci was nudged by another racer or a mechanical failure caused the slide. But either way, the car hit the wall at considerable speed and nearly disintegrated on impact.
The driver's side door sprung open as the car slid down the tarmac and Bartocci could be seen falling outside the vehicle, which was lucky for him as he could have been burned alive if he had been trapped in the car. When it finally came to a stop, the Raging Bull turned into a raging fireball. Fire crews initially took longer than expected to pull the driver from the wreckage and were seen using underpowered fire extinguishers to battle the blaze. The FIA is expected to investigate the incident. Amazingly, Bartocci survived the ordeal and is currently in intensive care.
Lamborghini canceled the remainder of the event and rounds six and seven have been indefinitely nixed as well.
