The season-opening Nissan Micra Cup round in Calabogie, Ontario was marred by a massive multi-car pile-up in Race Two on Sunday that left several teams with a hefty repair bill.
Two videos published on RacingNorth.ca show the magnitude of the crash, during which the car of reigning champion Olivier Bédard is hit hard while rolling through the infield.
Miraculously, and despite major damage to several cars, all drivers were unhurt.
