Incredible Crash in the British GT Oulton Park
Sunday, February 22, 2009
The crash happened in dry conditions, shortly after the start of the hour-long race, the first of the British GT Championship season.
His Ginetta G50 smashed through a crash barrier, went airborne, thudded into the ground, rolled about three times, landed on its roof and burst into flames. Then the driver walked out alive and well enough to assist the stewards in putting out the flames around his racing suit.
The race was temporarily halted as Abbott, in his mid-twenties, was helped into an ambulance. His car, thought to be brand new and worth more than £50,000, was destroyed.

Chimp Mom For Two White Tiger Cubs
Wednesday, November 12, 2008
However they have since found an unlikely surrogate mother in chimpanzee Anjana, who has taken on the role of caring for the cubs.
These adorable images will melt even the most cynical of hearts.
'Mitra and Shiva, were born during Hurricane Hannah,' said Dr Bhagavan, founder of TIGERS. "During that time everything flooded in the sanctuary and they had to be moved into the house as their mother became stressed.
'It was important for their safety that they were separated.'
Placed into the care of infant animal care giver China and her chimpanzee companion, Anjna, the cubs have become almost inseparable from their new motherly figures.
'She has raised leopards, lions, orangutans,' said Dr Bhagavan. 'Monkey see as monkey do, and she has taken on this copycat personality and helps China raise the animals.
'She has just finished raising four lions and they were inseparable. She is a great assistant.'
