The safety crews had lots of practice cleaning-up that weekend. From the looks of it, they needed it:

i don't know how to make it so, but i would if i could. i'm not going to video myself playing sax while watching the video, or one of my boots randolph records, but those are the only two ways i know how to make music over a video.

Whoever made that site is a genius.

Reminds me of MX/hare scrambles first turn crashes. Sorta like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Exvy0n6pA-0

That's the scariest part of any dirt bike race, the first turn. In GNCC or hare scrambles it is not unusual for the pack to be doing 60-70 MPH coming into that roughly 10 foot wide funnel.

No crash and these are beginners so not very fast but a pretty good idea of how many GNCC riders are after the same piece of real estate! http://www.vidoevo.com/yvideo.php?i=Q05LTE42cWuRpV3pMZUk&2009-ironman-gncc-dirt-bike-first-year-racer-start

Karting is the same way. There's almost always a serious bunch up in turn one and bumping seems to be the norm. Not a huge deal, per se, but I wonder if we're seeing more bumping and turn one crashes in motorsports because you have more drivers moving up from karts?

For example, this pic was turn one from my son's onboard camera last year in turn one of a huge race. (Everyone was fine, afterwards. The kid in the air landed sticky side down and kept going).

What is it about british mosport that tells them they need to wreck as many cars as possible? You thought watching NASCAR for the wrecks was awesome, watch some BTCC type stuff!

i think they all secretly wish they were in New Zealand running in those dirt track cars that are built specifically for the automotive version of roller derby..
