Amazing reaction from a race driver at 150mph in the rain - at Spa

The F1 circuit at Spa in Belgium is one from the old school.  Big scary corners, long fast straights and hardly any run off areas.  And it rains half the time.

This video shows Dino Zamparelli in his F2 car dive through the legendary Eau Rouge corner then head on down the Kemmel straight, in the rain.  Zamparelli is doing 150mph when he comes across a bunch of cars in the middle of the track, doing about 30mph.  His instant reaction probably saved his life.

Thanks to Max Prince for the tip.
