The FIA GT World Cup qualifying race at Macau was suspended after a huge pile up on the opening lap of the race.
In total, 16 cars were caught up in the collision at Police bend – one of the tightest parts of the 3.8-mile circuit in Macau, one of China’s Special Administrative Regions.
The 4th place runner Daniel Juncadella was first to hit the wall towards the exit of the corner.The pursuing Raffaele Marciello was able to squeeze past the crashed Mercedes, but defending GT World Cup winner Laurens Vanthoor was unsighted and could not avoid Juncadella’s car. Vanthoor hit the right-rear corner of the Mercedes before pretty much every other car then ploughed into the giant snake of cars piled into one another.
The race was immediately red flagged, with cranes at the right-hander clearing quickly beginning a clear-up job.
