2009 Macau GP – Crash photos from the crash fest

The 2009 Macau GP provided some great racing action in all the events. It also produced lots of minor, major and spectacular crashes. Safety car was called to action in all Sunday races, two of those (the 2nd WTCC race and the Formula 3 race) were even red flagged. There were no serious injuries but lots of debris and some seriously damaged cars. Here are photos of some of the Macau crash fest action from the Lisboa bend. There were more seriously looking crashes and pile ups but those occurred at higher speed corners, away from the lense of my camera. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the images:

For the record Edoardo Mortara (Signature) won the Formula 3 race ahead of Jean-Karl Vernay, Sam Bird, Marcus Ericsson and Valtteri Bottas. In WTCC Robert Huff (Chevrolet) won the first race and Augusto Farfus (BMW) the second one while Gabriele Tarquini (SEAT) clinched the 2009 title.

  1. Great crash photos! It all goes to show how tricky Macau is, as well as why winning it is so highly prized among F3 racers.
