‘Troy’ star Eric Bana crashed his sports car whilst partaking in a rally race in his home-country Australia yesterday. Luckily though, the young actor emerged unscathed shortly after the crash.

Bana was competing in the Targa Tasmania rally when he misconstrued a tight bend coming up; a mistake which sent him and his restored 1973 Ford XB Coupe into a lot trees. His car was badly damaged by the accident.

He says, “We had been having a great day until then… But I misjudged a tight left-hander and we went in a little too fast – the car under steered off the road and got onto the gravel and we went into a couple of trees at a fairly low speed.”

“The car is a little battered on the driver’s side which is a real shame, as many hours had been spent reshaping its original panels to get it just right. It’s a real shame, but that’s motor racing.”

Bana’s co-driver Tony Ramunno also came out uninjured. :J
