During qualifying, Johnsons's Austin A35 rolled over at one of the corners. Fortunately, the English singer was able to emerge out of the car on his own and was subsequently attended by the medical staff.

Johnson has always been passionate about racing cars. In fact, his love for racing has brought his music career to an end. The 69-year-old was forced to quit the AC/DC band in 2016 after suffering from a punctured ear drum - a direct consequence of taking part in a race without ear plugs.
