Shallow and narrow, Jet Sprint courses don’t offer much water for the powerful boats that compete on them to displace. Still, that didn’t stop V8 Superboat competitor Jody Ely from doing his best to empty the ditch during a crash in last weekend’s competition in Cabarita Beach, New South Wales, Australia. (For a complete report from the event, read today’s story.)

Ely, who was uninjured in the crash, managed to hold onto to third place overall in the series, which resumes Oct. 1 with Round No. 6 at Allcott Hire Park at Lake Centenary in Temora.
