Calcum suffered from a huge impact with the barriers at the exit of the pitlane in race two, after making contact with Target Competition’s Josh Files at the start whilst avoiding the car of Max Hofer, who moved over at the start. Unbeknownst to Calcum, Files was drawing alongside and the following contact pitched his car into the Armco barriers at high speed. Calcum, who scored a maiden podium earlier in the year at the Red Bull Ring, has launched a campaign as he fears his “future in motorsport is uncertain” as a result of the crash.

Dino Calcum has launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the repair of his Opel Astra TCR, after suffering a huge start-line accident in the second of last weekend’s ADAC TCR Germany races at the Nürburgring.

“Dino is a super, likable and fast driver, who has definitely earned a place in ADAC TCR Germany and with his ability can always be at the front. His goal remains to race in the ADAC TCR Germany Championship next year.
