Story is here: https://www.bbc.com/sport/motorsport/46253184

YouTube video is below. Lucky she's not dead. Video is not for the faint of heart. Seriously.

Her head was in the 3' gap in that stand... What the hell happened, complete brake failure, throttle stuck?

The start of the crash doesn't appear to have been caught on video, but her car collided with another one and they probably touched wheels. She was the one who became airborne.

JFC, that was ugly. There was phone video on twitter from another angle that had audio of her car scrapping along the guardrail on the previous straight. I'll wait to hear the official account but it won't surprise me if she had total brake failure and was trying to scrub off some speed.

This view is a little clearer, and it looks like she lost the rear axle completely, and the rear wing was off and actually behind her chassis when she hit - ass end first.

Fucking shit that car was flying, but what caused the lift to be so high? She had to be at least 15 feet off the ground when she hit that tent thingy. Any guesses?

Damn lucky to be alive.
You fucking moron. I so hope your insurance gets cancelled and you die alone in your Obama shit stained underwear.

She was going backwards at a huge rate of speed when she clipped the yellow car in the corner. She hit the side/back side of the front wheel of the turning car at a 45 angle and it launched her car like it was a jump ramp. The driver of the car she hit is also lucky to be alive, a foot or so to the left and it would of taken his head off.

Wheldon-like, only the car half-Rennaed when it went in. It held up better than the old G-Force. And therefore, she is alive. A few feet lower, no. A few feet higher, no. About 15 feet to the right, and she goes full Renna. No more Macau GP.

The odor of shit must of been have been nauseating around that stand.

The kerbs at Macau were much higher than last year; they were supposed to enforce track limits, especially on the GT cars.
Perfect for launching F3 cars.

The tub of the car she hit and launched her up. Dude was lucky. Didn't even know it was going to happen.

That is the thing about this sport. Tsuboi was just out there doing his thing, turning in properly and getting on with it, and bam! Look how ever loving close. The only solace in this, had it been another six inches, is the man would have never known. Just out there in the sport he loves and then darkness. God Bless him. And her. Tusboi is F3's RHR.

Been a lucky year...

That's Krosnoff-ish...but the car stayed on the ground though until it got launched by the turn-er in dude. Wow, she woulda been shredded if she didn't get launched...ala Helmut Koenig into that 3 row Armco. That's one lucky lady who caught that catch fence.

MOAR PROOF no one watches the IRL, who perfected every fence and grandstand entry anywhere and (maybe) no one knows. LOL, fukc the IRL and TRUMP.

She was launched by the blue curbing that they added to keep people from cutting the corner.

I have looked at it several times now. It is a real crowd-pleaser. Better than the Big One, but way short of Smiley. I give it a 9.5. Driven-ish for sure. Yep, the blue curbing did the trick. Both Tsuboi and Florsch are lucky as lucky gets. Could have been a Double-Koenig and/or gone Full Renna. Thus, the end of the Macau GP. Probably little to no vomit in this one due to it being goreless. But pant was shat.

This ups the ante over at EARL. The only way to top this one is to go Full Renna on race day. Just full-on, fucking Renna with a side order of Russell Phillips.
