Verstappen suffers nightmare incident during major endurance race

January 22 2024 , 12:40 am

One of the biggest events on the simulation racing calendar, Verstappen competed in Saturday’s race with Team Redline alongside team-mates Ola Steinbraten and Gianni Vecchio in the GTD class.

Just days priorhe Dutchman made his return to racing , as part of a ‘Real Racers Never Quit’ event, also for Team Redline at Daytona, where an early collision saw him limp home in eighth place.

And his misfortunes in sim racing continued as he came to blows with his team’s sister car.

With 12 hours and 50 minutes left of the race and running in second in class, the three-time world champion had a scary brush with another Team Redline car, driven by Josh Thompson.

Thompson appeared to slow down much quicker than Verstappen was expecting, resulting in him colliding with the back of the car and sending the Dutchman into a spin.
