A CRASH at the fastest part of Mount Panorama brought the fastest Friday in the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour’s history to an early end.

The red flags came out with 15 minutes left in Practice 4 after the Class C No.15 BMW of Kent Baigent and Class A No.8 Mercedes of Max Twigg made contact at the Chase.

Baigent was taken hospital for precautionary scans on his back, his BMW hitting the wall nose-first and doing enough damage to rule it out for the rest of the weekend.

Twigg’s Mercedes escaped the incident unscathed, albeit covered in dirt after slewing into the sand trap at over 270km/h.
