Ferrari 250 GTO
United Kingdom

During the RAC Tourist Trophy qualifying race, a 1964 250 GTO/64 Series II piloted by Andy Newall crashed while trying to pass a Corvette Stingray and 250 LM. According to the announcers, Newall failed to anticipate the LM's braking mid-corner on a right turn, causing him to swerve to the left to avoid rear-ending the other priceless Ferrari on the track. This maneuver lead to a snap-oversteer-induced spin that even the car's air brake couldn't help with, rocketing the GTO into a tire wall sideways.
