Am not a fan of Crash videos but can't deny that they are compelling...(the driver walked away)

It's not too bad. At least there was no sudden impact. You can really see the roll cage doing its job. The car hardly deforms at all. It was probably similar to a scary fair ground ride. But with more bruises.

Fk me what fairground rides have you been on?! I would say that some of the forces created by those spins at their extreme points would be very difficult to replicate unless you were a regular Tornado pilot or you enjoy space travel ...

You have to have sympathy for the blokes who had to fix it, as the title suggests - the drivers just walk away...

Yes, but do they walk in a straight line?

Robmw: in fairness it was nothing to do with it being a bmw... it was 99% to do with the roll-cage design and fabrication. Also he says the hans device saved him for the 2nd time - 865 dollars for the cheapest one! money well spent if you race IMO.
