TRP Racing Eclipse BIG CRASH

Posted by: Matt Wright on 11/18/2021

This Eclipse gets a bit too antsy and ends up finishing on the roof.

We can tell straight from the start that this RWD converted Mitsubishi Eclipse drag car is a handful. It looks like it is just dying to break the big meaty tires on the rear loose. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened at exactly the wrong time.

When about half way down the track, the TRP Racing Eclipse ran into a bit of difficulty. Watch as the car wiggles back and forth, absolutely refusing to cooperate with the driver, before it cuts a turn too hard and ultimately rolls over.

It doesn’t look as if the driver was injured as the car slid on its roof to the scoreboard. This is one unfortunate series of events to say the least.
