Now that was a close call.
We’ve seen some pretty close calls here on MotoringExposure, but this one is pretty crazy because it could’ve resulted in some serious injuries or even death.
During a drag race, a new Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV Roadster lined up alongside of a new Corvette to see who was faster. Like many races, there was a flag girl and a camera guy standing in the median, in front of both vehicles.
Prior to the flag drop, the Lamborghini driver engaged launch control to get the best start. Once the flag dropped, the driver punched the throttle. The only problem was that the cameraman decided that was also the perfect moment to walk in front of the Lamborghini.
Luckily, the driver was able to avoid the cameraman and a serious accident as he sped off to a victory over the Corvette.
Talk about a close call!
