    Re: A Hong Kong businessman died on ferrari crash!

    "Chan Ki-wo, a textiles business owner, is believed to have been racing at more than 100kmh when he lost control of his Ferrari 360 Modena and crashed along a highway in Hong Kong's rural New Territories yesterday."

    100kmh? I wonder why they picked that number? That's 60mph. Hopefully the guy got out without getting burned.

    Re: A Hong Kong businessman died on ferrari crash!

    local newspapers reported a 200km/h excess speeding and it is involved with illegal street race.

    the driver melted with the car.

    RIP

    Re: A Hong Kong businessman died on ferrari crash!

    Guys, to clarify it a bit, they were not street racing... This is a normal sunday drive in early AM. But these wild dudes go over 200km/h just to really use their car (I agree its not right). They are very organized.

    Re: A Hong Kong businessman died on ferrari crash!

    In HK, illegal street racing with exotics does happen once inawhile though, however, He belonge to one of many car clubs that, as Initald.com said, is very organized, they simply drive VERY hard on public streets.

    I prefer the peak New territories/Kowloon is a bit messy.

    Oops, now I see he passed. The wrong car to have a serious crash in.

    Yep - towards the Peak or from Tai Tam to Sheik-O...

    Re: A Hong Kong businessman died on ferrari crash!

    Common sense indicates that even new 599s are high-risk cars in terms of dubious passive safety, even when driven responsibly by a capable driver....for that exact reason, several jaded F owners limit their risk exposure to 599 (or any F) and opt for a far safer CL63/65 for 90%+ of their daily and wkend driving....superior risk/reward judgment tends to dominate claimed driving skills....

    Suspect an elderly POS 360 in a street race (and/or aggressively driven on public roads) provides much more risk than a 599....w/dubious perf/precision rewards....and they don't hand out ancient 360s to just any driver....

    Darwinian selection often prevails....

    A bit harsher than usual WBH, it is indeed unwise to drive at such speeds, but all of us do this on public roads at one time or another. You don't know the particular circumstances, it's especially unfair to pass judgement this quickly.

    But I do agree that far too many inexperienced drivers/poseurs find their way into supercars and often do stupid things that endanger everyone.

    Re: A Hong Kong businessman died on ferrari crash!

    RIP. We used to have a textiles business owner here on Rennteam from HK. This isn't him (I hope!) as he doesn't have a Modena. He had a 996 turbo, Gallardo, M5 and Cayman S which he painted with black wheels and checkered stickers on the body work. Maybe he knows this guy.

    Re: A Hong Kong businessman died on ferrari crash!

    hk police found more then three Fire Extinguishers at that location , simply there were others trying to stop the fire!

    and the car is f360 challenge!
