A speedway driver is in critical but stable condition in Sydney’s Westmead Hospital following a nasty crash at Valvoline Raceway.

Sydney driver Reid Mackay was transferred to Hospital last night suffering from serious head injuries after his Speedcar crashed violently in heat nine of the Sydney City Speedcar 50 Lap Classic, according to Nine News.

Video footage shows the 25-year-old lose control at speed before a series of frightening barrel rolls, culminating in the car landing on the other side of the crash barrier.

The race was immediately stopped as paramedics assessed the 25-year-old, who was subsequently taken to Westmead Hospital for further treatment.
