Motorsports are very dangerous. In fact, the spectators can be involved in the action just as much as the racers and vehicles. These racers know that anything can happen at a moments notice. Check out these insane crashes that were caught on camera.

Whoops, My Bad!
You know you are having a bad day when your supercar is doing cartwheels down the track. Good thing it’s aerodynamic.
