LFS A1GP Series Season 1 Pre-season prologue
There was already drama at the start as Brazilian Josenaldo Lopes do Prado Neto was flipped upside-down, with the force being so extreme it cracked his spine, rendering him unfit to take part in race 1 at Blackwood.
Then, McDonald of the UK lost the lead, handing it to Norway's Steinar Nilsen. There were dozens of accidents involving the countries, then suddenly, Poland's Mariusz Wisniewski came out of the pits after fixing his car and impeded the leader Nilsen, which caused him to clip the barriers and Irishman Michael McCarthy, who was behind Nilsen in second, to overturn his car, retiring him from the race. After the race, Nilsen, furious that he'd lost a chance for victory, demanded that Wisniewski be banned from the rest of the season. And he was. And to sum things up, Wisniewski was disqualified from eleventh place and fired from the Poland team.
Stefan Radovic took an amazing victory ahead of Alexey Vasyagin of Russia and home hero McDonald. After the race, Wisniewski was reported to have caused a huge massacre on the plane flying him back to Poland, thus sentencing him to life in jail and ruining his career as we know it. The Poland team's official test driver, Kamil Wozniak was drafted in as Wisniewski's permanent replacement. Lopes was replaced by Gildo Sales for the duration of his injury.
