  • Huge Indy Car Wreck at Pocono

    When those open wheels touch one another, it's "on" like Donkey Kong.

      That was about a 10 million dollar incident by my calculations, but I'm not all that good at math anymore. Hell, the steering wheels for those cars cost about 30 grand, the last time I heard, it's probably lots more than that now.

        Great save by Reay-Hunter with the assist by the wall. Dunno why but the cars and the driving style just feel "against a limiter" before the contact. Not lifting for ANYTHING, bumper car time!
        My hobby is needing a hobby.

          I don't even know what to say. But I know what my Mama would say, if she was around. She'd say, "They were just all going too fast. ENTIRELY too fast."

            That's real problem with most forms of motor racing . . . $30.000 is probably too much for a WHOLE racing car, much less a "steering wheel" . . . .

            Too many engineers, wind tunnels, and autoclaves . . . .

            Even most forms of amateur "sportsman" racing are becoming too much of a spending contest.
