    Re: Unreal

    Wow. Incredible, incredible wreck. What was that driver thinking carrying so much speed after the race seemed to be finished? Stuck throttle perhaps? Furthermore, what was that marshall thinking standing in such an exposed location?

    Thank goodness both are ok, that easily could have been a double-fatality. Scary stuff.


    Re: Unreal

    Incredible. Does anyone know what happened , how did he lost it on the straight?  Wish them a quick recovery, great to hear they are both alive.

    Speachless.... but he had the luck that the car could roll and loose the energy on distance!


    Re: Unreal

    Wow.

    I think having the majority of the event happen off camera like that makes it look pretty shocking to me - almost like watching a bullet hitting a target.  Did the car come out of the end of a cannon?

    Deceleration like that alone could cause brain trauma in some people.  Clearly the absorptive materials along with restraint systems in the car plus the integrity of the cage make an incredible difference.  Another testimony to modern safety science I guess.  Today's drivers have a lot working for them compared to yesteryear's.  He is lucky to be alive.

    Not much has changed to help the guys on the sidelines.  Hope that guy packed a set of clean underwear...

    great post.

    Let me guess: Blown tire/mechanical failure or overbraking (when he realized too late that he is too fast).

    Happy to hear that the driver and the other guy are OK.

    Re: Unreal

    I'm glad they are expected to make a full recovery, but what is up with the guys holding up the white pieces of fabric? they seem to just be in the way and not letting people have space to work. 


    Re: Unreal

    The screens are for privacy reasons. It would be bad for the public to see an injured driver and also bad for the driver to be seen in such a private moment. You will also notice them in F1 races when there are bad crashes.
