Incredibly, the teenager was able to get out of the car and walk away from his mangled vehicle.

“The 19-year-old was clipped from behind by Cooper Murray approaching one of the fastest parts of the Wanneroo circuit in the support category race before getting airborne as his Commodore rolled mid-air,” Supercars head of communications Paul Glover said in a statement.

“McLeod thankfully walked away from the incident and was treated by the medical team at the circuit.

“The result was backdated to the standings before the lap of the crash, which meant McLeod was awarded a 3rd place finish for the race.”
