Destruction

We were shocked from our state of contentment and our comfortable chairs when a Porsche suddenly took flight directly in front of us.  Apparently tagged by another car, the Porsche became airborne, smashed into the concrete barrier and slid down the track flinging parts and debris after it as it disappeared under the Sargento bridge.  John grabbed his camera and snapped this shot from the other side of the bridge.   Thanks to modern safety equipment and a competent safety crew the driver, in the green and black race suit, walked away.  The Porsche was destroyed.
