APR S4 suffers massive crash during the Bosch Engineering 200 at VIR

33 minutes ago the APR S4 was showing progress and moving up in position after a caution lap. Shortly after that the race abruptly ended for the S4 after suffering a crash as the race went back to green. As we can see from the pictures there’s massive damage to the car. Luckily the driver Gary Gibson was unhurt and was able to walk away. QuattroWorld would like to wish to the best to the APR Motorsports team and hope to see the S4 back on the track as soon as possible.

As of 15 minutes ago the GTIs piloted by Ryan Ellis in the 171 and Chris Gleason in the 181 is running in first and third.

We have a photographer there covering the race and we will post an update later today with more information and pictures.
