That’s when the honest mistake happened; Booth’s car got airborne for about 400 feet before making contact with the catch fence. It’s unbelievable that he suffered only minor injuries and was able to get out and walk away on his own. Equally impressive as the safety of the cars and the track are the cameras mounted on the Ferrari. The collision is well caught from numerous angles and the rear-facing camera even stays in place while the front-mounted one skips down the track continuing to record the whole thing. Stay safe!
