    Re: FORD GT INSANE - video

    I am very familar with the roads they were driving and I am surprise they could go that long at those speeds because the roads are heavily monitored by police. The Z06 is some car.

    Re: FORD GT INSANE - video

    I'm not familiar with the roads, but i'm surprised that the GT could go that long without stop for fueling

    Re: FORD GT INSANE - video

    Crazy but great . I wan't both those cars, especially the FORD.

    Re: FORD GT INSANE - video

    Can anyone explain what the Bullrun is? Oh, btw, that looks just like an accident waiting to happen. Irresponsible behavior.

    Did I hear the Z06 passenger say that the Ford was being driven by its chief designer?

    Re: FORD GT INSANE - video

    Morons .....must be an "old lady" driving the Ford GT,
    "she" forgot to turn-off the right turn indicator.

    Re: FORD GT INSANE - video

    That is some excessively reckless driving, but amazing nonetheless!!!

    Yes but i find it difficult to believe he would be that stupid.

    Re: FORD GT INSANE - video

    Too much traffic for those speeds, but something to watch. They passed what looked like a murcielago and a gallardo driving together.

    It was the Bullrun - some kind of copy of Gumball. Personally, I didn't find their driving really dangerous most of the time, although some situations did have me raising an eyebrow very high indeed (missing a car by inches is one of them).
    Also, has anybody noticed the amount of cars hugging the fast lane? Incredible !

    That is what we who drive performance cars in the US get irritated about. We call them road hogs and they sit in the 3rd lane going slow forcing you to pass on the inside. Average american drivers are inconsiderate and uneducated in proper driving. I don't believe you would see that on the autobahn

    There was an incident a couple of years ago. Search Google for "Turbo Rolf". A Mercedes factory driver came behind a woman in some small vehicle. She was hugging the left lane on a three-lane highway, doing about 100 km/h and he came up behind her doing 250 km/h. When she saw a big, black Mercedes CL closing in on her, braking, she swerved off the road and hit a tree, killing herself and her baby in the back seat. The car never stopped. He was never proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt (the witnesses saw a black Mercedes, but that was it), but the media convicted him and the female judge, totally incompetent it seems, bowed to the pressure and convicted him to two years in prison (might be off with the figure). He also lost his license and got fired by MB. So yes, it also happens elsewhere, but luckily it's rare. I did however have to brake in an emergency once when a VW Golf cut me off while I was doing 280 km/h in a C4S. I skidded to a near halt, doing only about 100 km/h and the guy didn't even notice I was there . One time too many for me...

    Too much speed for that traffic..! Honestly I would have a hard time going those speedsin - especially in the US - with drivers around me doing misc. things, e.g. talking, eating... Talking on the mobile phone without a hands-free device in Europe is massively forbidden, any news on that in North America?

    You are absolutely right that the media, namely the yellow press, massively contributed to the condemnation.
    As far as I know he ended up with a one-year probation in court of appeal. I have my doubts about his guilt, especially after a very extensive and informative report on ARD first channel.

    Re: FORD GT INSANE - video

    Idiots. I'm sure they can handle the cars just fine but going that fast through TRAFFIC is like asking for the grim reapers advice.

    Sure Ive had my fun but once is more thn enough. Heavy traffic = methodical driving. They were being reckless.

    Re: FORD GT INSANE - video

    Boys , whats amazing about that ? , any of us can drive like that..Too many chances taken throughout the video , its pricks like these that end up killing someone and not themselves..

    See I do rant sometimes , but come on they could have picked a more suitable area and time..

    throt...
