Watch: Unsafe Chinese safety car causes crash in touring-car race

It’s hard to say who’s having the worst day at this point

We all have bad days at work. But this is a really bad day at work. In a Chinese Touring Car Championship race at the weekend, the safety car driver managed to wipe out the two leading racers after bizarrely sweeping out of the pitlane with seemingly no awareness of where in the world they were.

Watch the clip above and see the Nio SUV ditheringly punt itself right in front of the entire touring-car grid, sending the front two cars—the BAIC Senova D50s of brothers and teammates David and Juan Carlos Zhu—crashing into each other and thus out of the race. Yikes.

Have you had a worse day at work than this?
