'F*ck!': The moment a drag racing car went airborne & crashed in front of families in Ipswich

Sam Fenech has been named as the driver killed in the horror crash.

More footage has emerged out of last night's horror drag racing crash at Willowbank Raceway in Ipswich, with a car becoming airborne before smashing into a camera tower and leaving a camera operator with non-life threatening injuries.

Sam Fenech has been named as the driver killed in the horror crash, which happened in front of dozens of families at the New Year Nitro drag event.


6 News has obtained additional footage of the crash, which - while not being graphic due to the distance away it was filmed & the video quality itself - we have chosen to heavily censor due to the nature of the story.

Spectators are heard saying 'f*ck' seconds after the car left ground and began rolling repeatedly.

The footage was also broadcast live on Facebook.
