Matt Hall survives a scare

Pilot Matt Hall almost took a plunge into the Detroit river today during the qualification run. He lost control of his plane because of an aerodynamic wing stall which caused both wings and right gear to hit the water, the force of the water ripped the cowl off the gear. Matt recovered from the mishap and returned safely to the Windsor airport with minor damages done to his aircraft. Unfortunately he will not be able to repair his plane in time for the race. Qualifying day has come to an end and Nigel Lamb had the best time on the Windsor track. The action will continue tomorrow with the official race. We'll be sure to keep you posted.
