A team in Targa Newfoundland 2018 flipped their car during the first day of the auto race on Sunday.
A video posted to Facebook shows a vehicle rounding a corner in Flatrock, hitting the shoulder and flipping end over end before coming to rest on the roof. People run towards the car, waving down other cars coming around the corner.
A news release from Targa on Sunday referred to “an incident” that caused “a slight delay.”-CBC
