"I'm Learning to Fly, But I Ain't Got Wings..."

Well, this was a short race: more time spent in the air than on the pavement after the rolling (pun intended) start!

I thought it was interesting that the driver kept trying to steer while he was riding over the wall. What else can you do? It's amazing that the camera survived the rollover and did not come flying out of the car. This way it was able to capture in great detail the roll bar carving up the pavement and the fluids leaking out when the car finally comes to rest. The driver was very lucky to escape unharmed in this accident.
