A shocked race director says he could have been killed or seriously injured after he was almost hit by a racing car.

Thousands of people had flocked to Ringwood town centre to watch the British Pedal Car Grand Prix on Sunday afternoon, which sees roads closed as competitors weave through the streets in homemade pedal cars.

A parade lap before the main event was set to be led by a vintage Formula 5000 car driven by enthusiast Barry le Prevost, who part owns nearby pub the Lamb Inn.

However, as video shot by the Daily Echo shows, the showcase almost turned to disaster as the vehicle suddenly accelerated towards race director Steve Fowler, who was forced to jump into a crash barrier to avoid being struck.

“I was roughly 30 or 40 yards away from him and I just couldn't believe how fast he went,” said Mr Fowler. “He went full power I imagine. I don't know what speed he went but I saw my life come up in front of me.”

“I think I just managed to get out of the way before the front wheels clipped me. I just jumped into the crash barrier.”

Mr Fowler described how he has not been able to stop thinking about the incident since it happened and had been left shocked.

He added: “There were pedestrians' two to three deep just lining up by the crash barrier. It could have been so much worse. There were children, families, pushchairs.

“There was a crash barrier between the pedestrians and the road but if he had hit that crash barrier with me in front of it the crash barrier would have crashed into all those people.”

Mr le Prevost admitted he had been doing 'a little bit of a burnout' when the incident occurred and that the near-miss had 'turned his stomach'.

“I saw him at the last minute,” he said. “I did not expect him.

“He decided to come out when I was travelling at quite a fair old speed.”

A spokesperson for the British Pedal Car Grand Prix said Mr le Prevost had been asked prior to the event to drive slowly.

He added: "The organising committee of this year's British Pedal Car Grand Prix deeply regrets that the actions of one person could potentially put at risk the wellbeing of the general public and volunteers at this year's race.

“Every effort will be made to avoid any and all risks at future events."

If you are a marshal, you don't stand on the track. He put himself in danger. But then I guess he's not so used to vehicles moving that fast when all he's used to are peddle cars

So many things need to be questioned:

- Surely it was the race director's responsibility to talk to the driver, before he go into the car! Why didn't he?
- Did the vehicle have an MOT/Insurance/Tax? ( I guess this car has never been registered for the road) If not, did the organizers have an act of Parliament to close a public road for Motorsport use?
- Should the Marshalls be wearing fire retardant overalls? (this is standard for Motorsport)
- Should the driver be wearing fire retardant overalls and a helmet. (this is standard for Motorsport)
- I don't recall seeing any fire extinguishers?

None of these key points was addressed by the Echo. However they focus on a drama queen, who walked out in front of a moving vehicle. To make things worse he was the race director, who was surely responsible for the event.

This sort of poorly organised and poorly executed event could resulted in damaging the name of Motorsport in the country.

Oh and there's no way that was anywhere near flat out for that car!! Final those safety barriers would have been no good even if a pedal kart had crash into them, suggest a change of pants and at the end of the day it's the race directors fault for not briefing the driver before the F5000 was even taken off the trailer, only one person to blame and it's not the F5000 driver :-))

The driver was trying to do a burnout, by his own admission, to entertain the crowds. After all it is a noisy racing car that is far more spectacular to watch moving than a static display. He obviously got more grip on the tarmac than he was expecting and shot forwards towards the marshall. Could have been worse, but it wasn't. The driver made a mistake but luckily got away with it without hurting anyone.
Lots of stupid comments about barriers and fire extinguishers - it was a pedal car race. Not many of them would go flying through the barriers into the crowd in a ball of flames! Lastly, of course the road was closed. There as a pedal car race on. It would be much of a race if they all got stuck behind a bus would it?

Lets put this in perspective. Most race circuits have a sign that states 'Motor racing is dangerous'! Most racing cars have very noisy engines this one had a V8, and it was very loud. Commentator could be heard all through the Market Square and announced said departure of very loud car. All stewards were aware this was going to happen and were prepared, as were the spectators. The Race Director should have been at the starting line to check with the driver, and that he was satisfied the procedures in place, to allow him to go. Had he been this incident wold not have taken place!

Quite agree. It's clear the event was only setup for slow pedal cars and so the car driver had been asked to go SLOWLY. He ignored those instructions and put his foot down, not only endangering the marshal but the spectators too, as the crash barriers were totally unsuitable to contain a car at high speed should he have lost control.
The car driver has blown his chance of ever being invited back to that event and would be more suited to going to the B/mth wheels festival instead; although given he can't even adhere to simple instructions, I doubt they'd want him there either.

perhaps you could explain to us all what 'traffic' comsists of

otherwise this Mr Magoo had little awareness of what was around him or any real control over the car, and I doubt that he had perceived that the Marshall was in the road ahead

irrespective of whether he should or should not have been in the road it is clear that he was in the road BEFORE Magoo stuck his foot down
