Things got a bit messy at the start of a Porsche Cup race at Zandvoort on Sunday May 20.

There were cars going off in all directions and one was stranded on the track. Without the Safety Car deployed a marshal decided to effect a rescue, trying to tow the stricken car out of harm’s way with racecars still racing at full tilt.

Unsighted another race approaches as the tow vehicle and damaged racecar are trying to cross the track.

Talk about a close call. You can watch the incident below, and the full race here.
