VIDEO: Driver escapes spectacular roll at Barbagallo

Lisson avoided serious injury after being pitched into the air

Australian Formula Vee competitor Kathy Lisson has avoided serious injury following a spectacular roll at Perth’s Barbagallo Raceway.

Lisson was pitched into the air after touching the rear wheels of the car in front as the field slowed during a race at the Western Australian venue.

As a result, the car flipped twice before coming to rest on the circuit.

Lisson walked away with a sore neck and bruising, but no serious injuries, according to a local news report.

“I do remember thinking, ‘oh I’m up in the air’ and then lots of bangs,” Lisson told 9NEWS. “It happens very quickly.”
