  • Survive this!



    Just saw this on CNN. Amazingly, the drive and navigator both did survive. With only minor injuries.

    From: http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...d-camera-video

    By now, nearly everyone in the United States, racing fan or not, has seen Jeremy Foley and Yuri Kouznetsov’s horrific crash during Sunday’s Pike’s Peak Hill Climb. The driver and co-driver even made an appearance on NBC’s Today Show, where Foley admitted that his last thought before the car left the mountain was, “this is it, this is game over.”

    At impact, it’s “a big washing machine of pain and violence,” as Kouznetsov so aptly described it to Today’s Savannah Guthrie. As anyone who’s ever been through a violent crash will tell you, the ordeal may last only seconds, but it plays back over minutes in your mind.

        "That's way worse than last year." Jesus, how about a guard-rail?

        Same corner, last year.

          In a normal car, both people would be dead. Since this was a race car, where a roll cage, full harness, protective suit and crash helmet are mandated, the two survived this horrific crash in better shape than one would have expected.

              Acutally, this was the first year that the race wan run on a paved course. I ran across this picture from 1964 in Hot Rod; I believe it's the same corner.
