In one of the more bizarre/random stories we have had to cover, German-Irish actor and Hollywood star Michael Fassbender has suffered a crash in a Le Mans 24 hour qualifying race.
While the crash looked fairly serious, with his car spinning into a wall and forcing the officials to wave a red flag, the actor looked to be uninjured.
You check the crash out below.
The red flag is out! 🟥

Fassbender has been competing in the European Le Mans Series with Proton Competition, while the main Le Mans 24 Hours Race begins this Saturday.
He has also long had an interest in motor racing, and has spoken previously of his love for the sport.
"Even before I started acting I had a big dream to go racing - it was clear to me at a young age.
"I think it's the history of the place; to be part of that would be unbelievable."
