Video of Crash at Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières

Lloyd Read in the Almost Everything Star Mazda Championship race
Video below shows Lloyd Read in the Almost Everthing/JDC Motorsport Pro Formula Mazda advancing a couple positions right at the start of the race at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (GP3R) in Quebec, Canada. Then another driver causes a multi-car pile up. Our car gets damaged and Read is injured but manages to get back to the pits. JDC Motorsports miraculously replaces both front and rear suspensions in just 15 minutes and we're back racing. Be sure to watch the end of the video for the crash view from the rear mounted camera. It shows all the other cars piling up behind us!

Read went on to finish the race with a broken thumb. The time for repairs, while amazingly quick, ensure that Read and Almost Everything will not be on the podium this race. But Read gains valuable championship points by managing to finish in spite of the crash and injury.

Read was the Champion of the 2011 Goodyear Formula Car Challenge Series for Almost Everything. In 2012 he once again led the championship until crashes (caused by other drivers) put him out of contention. In 2013 Read pilots the #16 Almost Everything-JDC Motorsports formula car in the "Road to Indy" Star Mazda Championship.
