Ryal Harris and Nash Morris almost certainly won’t be on each other’s Christmas card list at the end of the year, as the two drivers collided in epic fashion during the Super2 Series race at Eastern Creek.
Harris was forced wide onto the grass and flew through the mud before sliding back onto the track.

However, while Harris was able to keep his car moving, there was nothing he could do as the car skidded straight into the body of Morris’ Boost Mobile Commodore.
The collision immediately ruled both drivers and their cars out of the race.
One commentator could see the action unfold in almost slow motion.
“This could be chaos at Turn 5,” the commentator said.
“A big hit!
“Can they get those cars moving, or are we headed for another stoppage?”
However, it didn’t stop Morris, the son of former Bathurst winner and well-renowned firebrand Paul, from hopping out his car and strutting right over to Harris before ripping his door open and giving him an earful, often gesturing his frustration.
“That’s the international signal for ‘what was that all about,’ the commentator said.
“And he’s (Harris) trying to explain to him, ‘I was pushed off!’”
Harris is a former SuperUtes champion and developed a reputation for being somewhat of a firebrand himself in his time racing in the category.
“If you want to start those games with Ryal Harris, he was one of the feistiest ute races we’ve ever had,” the commentator remarked.
The collision was perhaps a welcome of sorts for Morris, who is competing in his first-ever Super2 event after winning the Super3 Series in 2021.
