Pye crashes out in Supercars practice

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 23/07/2016

Supercars driver Scott Pye appears to have escaped serious injury after a high-speed crash in practice at Queensland Raceway on Saturday.

Pye walked away from his DJR/Team Penske Ford after spearing off the track into a tyre wall late in the final 15-minute practice session for the Ipswich SuperSprint.

Team officials believe Pye's Falcon suffered brake failure heading into turn three of the 3.12km circuit and it appears unlikely his vehicle will be fixed in time to line up for Saturday's 120km race.
