This is the jaw-dropping moment a young racing driver lost control of his father's cherished car - and ploughs it into the sea.
George Miedecke was driving the classic Ford Capri Perana after his father let him race in Tasmania, Australia, on the basis 'he didn't crash and he didn't finish second'.
But the 25-year-old left the road on a tight corner at 80mph, plunged off the road and smashed into the sea.

There goes the no claims: With a huge splash, the car hits the water at high speed in front of a car that had already crashed
The corner where he crashed had already seen an accident and Mr Miedecke smashed into another competitor's car in the shallows.
Fortunately, he and his co-driver Daniel Willson both emerged relatively unscathed following their brush with death.
He said: 'It was a tightening corner and obviously somehow we got it wrong, either in the pace notes or I made a mistake, I'm not sure.
'We weren't even pushing that hard, but when you go into a corner that tightens more than you expect it to, there's not much you can do.
'Luckily Daniel and I are both ok.'
