Watch: All the spins, crashes from 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours

It’s no understatement to say that the 2016 edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours produced one of the most dramatic finishes ever seen in motorsport.

The race weekend played host to more than just a heartbreaking finish though, as fans saw a few spins, hard shunts and general offs as well.

Fortunately, YouTuber ‘crambno29 R’ did the legwork and produced a compilation of some of the best crashes, spins and hair-raising moments.

Highlights include a prototype on fire (2:10), some wet weather anarchy that includes the safety car drifting (3:40), a nasty sideways impact with the tyre barrier (4:30) and a GT car’s bone-crunching collision with the tyre barrier (6:52).
