still under caution laps after the toyota hybrid prototype and GTE ferrari hit the wall together at over 200mph at the mulsane corner off of the mulsane straight . the collision between both cars nearing the end of the mulsane straight caused the toyota to literally fly thru the air after it became airborne flying backwards

They're good, prototype driver has a sore back, but appears to be ok. The GT driver that caused it didn't interview well. Just stood there and acted like he couldn't speak english, trying to act like it was the prototype's fault - even though he turned into his rear quarter after he was already passed.

the GTE driver looked well during the interview but the prototype driver was not available for interview but they're saying he's really sore and in some pain .the impact between both cars against the armco barrier completely destroyed it even with a stack of banded tires 6 deep it destroyed the armco barrier

this is the fastest part of the course at the end of the mulsane straight were speeds approach close to 200mph before entering mulsane corner . when the toyota got turned around by the ferrari it became airborne after the air got under the race car and it flew thru the air

Actually it was 1988 and 251.1 mph. The chicanes were installed in 1990.

The car that did it, the WM p88 Peugeot, was built specifically for this record. Special tires, taped off air ducts, etc etc. After the record was broken the car was pulled in and put away.

Twin turbo V6 powered!

Heres a little fun fact, back before the chicanes were put on that straight, a car hit 251 mph during the race.
It was also the longest straight a way (8+ mi long) in racing on a road course
