VIDEO: De Vries wrecks car in HUGE Le Mans shunt... but keeps going!
Nyck de Vries was involved in a massive shunt in the latter stages of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, smashing the windscreen and wrecking the front-left corner of his Racing Team Nederland car. After burying his car into the barriers, the game looked up for De Vries and his team.
But the Dutchman refused to take no for an answer!
He gamely got his car out of the gravel trap and tyre wall and somehow limped it back home to the pits.
The team soon took to some running repairs, with lots of gaffer tape in action as they looked to get back running in the final few hours.
