A couple weeks back we showed you video of a replica Shelby Cobra racer cheating death when his car rolled. That guy did not have any sort of roll cage protection around him, but the guy in this video does. The wrecks are eerily similar in the fact that a rear end failure caused them, they were both violent roll overs, and the racers were totally along for the ride. In the faux Cobra wreck, the driver did not have arm restraints on and he came amazingly close to losing his arms when the machine went barrel rolling.
While this is certainly scary and a ride that we’d never want to take, the driver in this car was very well protected by the roll cage. You’ll see the car hanging off the back of a wrecker heading back to the pits nearing the end of this video and the main hoop and down bars show no signs of failure or movement. The driver in this car was able to hang onto the wheel, but even is he lost his grip, the arm restrains he has on would have prevented his limbs from flailing outside of the car.
We are not sure what brand of camera he had running on this car, but it was one tough little bastard as it recorded the entire ordeal without giving up!
Cinch your belts, press play, and HOLD ON!
