Matt Moss suffered a horrifying crash this past weekend, when he collided with a piece of machinery that was on-track. Moss, the defending champion, was told to commence his ‘super pole’ lap and was in the middle of doing so when the incident occurred. Reports suggest that a broken leg was sustained, although an official update has not yet been published. We have, however, received this statement from Williams Event Management…
