Messed up i think. He parked and got out of his car before the wreck instead of after and ended up losing his car for sure.

Yep, complete with some sort of V8 swap. Looks like some other nice cars lost there, I think I saw two older Porsches go sliding into other cars are pretty high speeds.

Two were hospitalized, hope they're okay. A GT3 that blew a coolant hose is apparently the cause, and no flags to alert an accident.

i like how they say they dont allow anyone to run coolant.

im sure most people that use the ring, more tourists then actual racers I assume on an average, use coolant.

Where were the marshals/corner workers? The article says they left early? Shut the track down for the day if you don't have enough people to keep it safe. Yes I know it's a big track and hard to cover the whole thing but there's a reason those folks do what they do. A completely preventable occurrence, stuff like that happening is what leads to nice things like touristenfahrten becoming a thing of the past.
