Similar to the GTLM class of the main race it supports, the Championship in the GT3 Cup Challenge was up for grabs this weekend at Petit Le Mans. With three leaders within seven points of each other it was anyone's guess as to who would take the title. Then, right before the start of the race, it began to rain. Then they waved the green flag and this happened.
Of the three leaders in contention for the Championship Colin Thompson (driving the orange Kelly Moss Porsche) was the only one who didn't end up off-track. As a result, he went on to win the race and the championship. You can watch the whole start, and resulting crash, play out in the video below.
