I saw that on a bar TV when I was eating at a restaurant the other night but the audio was turned off so I didn't know what the hell was going on. Could have been nasty if he hit that rail when he was still at an angle..

Holy crap....I would have sh*t myself if I was in the car in front of him, see someone in your mirror spin out, then see thier car a foot behind yours flying through the air, then the body spitting shrapnel at you as you exit a turn

Yes, that was Monza. The explanation I've heard most is sudden RR suspension failure.
