On the RMS Blog: Qualifying for Australia's biggest motorsport event, the Bathurst 1000, was halted early into the opening session after last year's winner, Chas Mostert, crashed heavily. Mostert's car bounced from wall to wall on the tricky Forrest's elbow section of the Mount Panorama Circuit, before coming to rest in the middle of the track.

The Pepsi Max Falcon V8 Supercar was approaching 120mph when Mostert lost control and came terrifyingly close to flying over the wall and off the circuit, where it would have then rolled down the mountain. (Read the Full Article Here)

Also in HD on BT Sport Europe at 12am on Saturday night /Sunday morning, if you have that @Big Pimp

Happy to report that the marshal who was taken to hospital has no major or serious injuries. Chas Mostert is undergoing surgery to a clean break to his left femur.

Practice has also been rescheduled and will take place at 00:20 on Saturday, UK time. Qualifying and the pole shootout will be at around 02.30 am, UK time.

Nasty bump, still it hard to beat a Nascar restrictor plate race like Daytona
