Racing driver escapes bomb blast

A bomb attached to the Mercedes of a prominent Russian racing driver, Sergey Zlobin, has exploded in Moscow. It detonated under the car as Zlobin started to drive off.

Sergey Zlobin suffered minor concussion in the incident.

An investigation is underway.

“I started the car then reversed about a metre and heard the explosion under my feet. The floor blasted open. I got out of the car and saw that it wasn’t on fire then called the police. Nothing extraordinary there, I just feel sorry about the car. I am very lucky that my legs are fine because the floor was badly damaged,”Sergey Zlobin commented.
