From Checkpoint, 4:06 pm on 8 April 2024

An investigation is underway after a car catapulted over a four metre high safety fence during a streetstocks race at a Dunedin speedway track, narrowly missing spectators.

Video of the incident at the Beachland Speedway track on Friday shows a gnarl up on a bend with two cars colliding at speed.

One is sent into a barrell roll, while other appears to be thrust into air by the force of the rolling vehicle.
