    This is slightly OT but did any one see the video of the race car flying off road and down the clift at Pikes Peak last Sunday? Incredible carnage! The 2 occupents survived. It looks like a stunt from a action movie but it was the real deal. I saw it in MSNBC internet.

    Yep, it was on the news TV stations around here...there ain't no guardrails on Pikes Peak highways so you've got to be on your toes ALL the time...

    After hearing the passengers were okay, I laughed my ass off.

    Very scary.

    Here's the crash from the on-board camera:


    ...and the footage from downhill:

    I was suprised when I saw it was on the pavement instead of gravel. They were on the Today Show this AM. Some pretty impressive cracks in the Bell helmet.

    This would be better on the Dogfight Forum.
