MANILA – Driver and car enthusiast Angie King figured in a car accident over the weekend in what she referred to as the “shortest race” in her career.
King took part in the Ferrari Challenge in Monza, Italy, which left her car severely damaged.
Fortunately, she was unhurt.
“What a devastating weekend. Three DNFs (did not finish) and possibly the shortest race in my race career,” she said in an Instagram post on Monday (Manila time), which gave the public a glimpse of the accident.
“I am sore and depressed with how my Finali Mondiali turned out to be a derby instead of a race… I am glad I was able to walk away from this accident.”
Her wife, model Joey Mead, also took to social media to share the “fear, anxiety, and sheer panic” she felt during the car crash.
“This weekend was a tough one for Ange. She is okay! Not a scratch on her! As you can see, the car took a major beating earlier. My heart stopped, my mind blew up, and I ran out to the track pit like a bat out of hell looking for her… pushing people from my mad run,” she recalled. “All I could think... was to find her and hold her.”
Mead went on to say she is relieved that the race is finally over. “You know I support her and her passions, I love her. But I’m happy race week is done… for this year,” she said.
She also told her wife to “please find another passion,” using it as the hashtag for her Instagram post.
King came out as a transgender in 2016.
