at least the front end is low enough to scoop you up instead of push you under. I'd rather roll over than be run over anyday.

I like autocross. I used to autocross a lot. I've seen a few accidents, but that is horrible. I hope no one was badly injured.

Thats why beginners NEED traction control. Hell, even intermediate and advanced users can benefit from it. Its my opinion only the most advanced drivers can really truly benefit from kicking the TC off.

Holy shit ... that guy that got nailed doesn't look like he cleared the car far enough to avoid being snowplowed by the back end as it came around.

That's what you get for standing next to an autocross track.

Yeah, always funny when innocent bystanders get injured because some dumbass cant drive his cool $50,000 sports car.

I had seen that before. At least 4 years old.

I need to dig up my old video archives. I have some formula porsche cars lifting off and flipping that are wild.

Those that stand next to racetracks take their chances. Especially when there are no barriers between them and the vehicles.


I don't feel sorry for those people that stand next to the course at rally competitions and get plowed by out of control vehicles either.

Any type of racing carries a certain element of risk with it, including loss of control. This can effect anyone near the vehicle at the time of the incident, including "innocent" bystanders (I hold that any adult that stands that close to a race course isn't really "innocent" if they get hit by a vehicle).

The only dumbass I see in this clip is the guy that stood next to an open course where performance vehicles were being raced.

Maybe this guy should just sue the driver, the sponsors, and the organizers of the event for not telling him to go away. That'll make everything better.

They stopped the video before the good stuff started.
Geez, no flying fiberglass or anything.

Some guy with more money than brains ran his detachable penis off the track, awwww...too bad!

I hope the Genius standing by the "track" can and did sue the dumbass.

That looked like it hurt. A lot.


Without much experience in the body vs. car dilemma, what are the odds the poor bastard lived?
