Taupo-based V8 SuperTourer driver John McIntyre has called for urgent safety revisions at the Ruapuna circuit in the aftermath of his narrow escape from serious injury.

In the final practice session McIntyre slammed into the outside barrier between turns one and two, suffering a dislocated shoulder, severe bruising to his ribs and a sore thumb at the 3.3km Powerbuilt Tools Raceway track in Christchurch.

His Blackwoods Protector Falcon missed the majority of the gravel trap before the passenger side of the car took the full brunt of the impact. CLICK HERE to read full story on
