This has to be one of the most genuinely frightening crash videos.  During the American Le Mans Series’ Oak Tree Grand Prix today, there was contact between Paul Miller in the #48 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR and #31 Eduardo Cisneros in the a Porsche GT3 Cup car.

The resulting crash had Miller’s car hitting the tire barrier and then spinning out into the grass, while Cisneros’ car simultaneously went flying into the air and tumbled to land on the same tire barrier, mere inches away from ESPN cameraman Rich White.  Thankfully, all parties involved are ok but this was another reminder of how dangerous racing is, and how much respect racers deserve for the risks they take.  Also much respect to the brave, dedicated people who stand along the circuits as Race Marshalls, safety crews and media.  They couldn’t do it without you.
