A few weeks in the past we confirmed a video of fellows drag racing into very, very thick fog. There was a basic furor in regards to the security of the racers and the way they had been permitting automobiles to be on the observe in these situations. Welp, while you watch this the fog night time looks like a seaside in Tahiti by comparability. You’re about to see a classic Lola Components 5000 automotive crash at Goodwood…within the snow. The occasion that the automobiles had been working at occurred to be the Goodwood members assembly and the Components 5000 class was being run as an illustration. These guys weren’t racing, they had been simply on the market displaying off their stuff. Then issues went incorrect.
As you will note, the Lola with its full slicks and potent 5,000cc engine was minding its enterprise basically by itself on the observe. It appears to us like the motive force might have given it some throttle after which the automotive comes proper out from beneath him, slides into the grass, after which bashes the wall head first. For a automotive that we’d estimate to be price a couple of half million bucks, it is a fairly crummy shot.
Clearly the drivers knew what they had been moving into on the market and nobody had a gun to their head to maintain them on the observe however it’s nonetheless fairly wild to see this stuff on the market in a fairly critical snow squall. We’re glad that the motive force was OK and we’re guessing that the automotive will likely be welded again collectively in brief order to assault the observe once more.
Assume there’s a marketplace for a classic street racing snow tire?
