I got it, I got it....I don't got it

  1. It's amazing how quickly these cars break away. And I love that he remembers to put the car into neutral while nearly barrel-rolling.

  2. This is a good reason why having asphalt instead of grass is safer. If that wheel would have dug in a bit more the car surely would have flipped.

  3. Agree 100% with the above post. Also, wet asphalt gives the drivers a fighting chance to recover (with a dose of luck thrown in). I don't like the idea of grass just behind the rumble strips, especially in the rain.

  4. Could you please tell where do you find these Mattzel89 F1 videos?

  5. Sadly, paving everything is extreamly dangerous for motorcycle racing, generally much more dangerous than a rolled F-1 car. I do think that the transition seems a bit abrupt, if it was smoother maybe the car would have stayed settled and not tried to flip.

  6. oh...oH...OH!....ohhhhhh, Kamui...

    Lucky he didn't go over on that one, interesting to see the car start to barrel roll. Would have been messy. At least there's still action on the old start/finish straight eh?
