Shocking images that come from a karting circuit from Rivas-Vaciamadrid, a town in the Spanish capital, in an accident that could have ended in tragedy. Two amateur drivers staged a crash in which one of them ended up in the air giving a round of the bell.
At a recently opened chicane on the track, the victim crash into one of the walls at the first turn, losing control of the kart, and in the second he is trapped between his rival and the next wall, going out catapulted through the air and taking a turn.
