Default Nasty crash at drags last night!

Here's a nasty crash that was caught on camera at last night's drag racing in Sydney.

Thankfully nobody appears to be seriously hurt.

It just goes to show there's very good reason to run the safest roll cage you can create for your Cobras when hitting the strip.

That's a shocker! The emergency crews wouldn't expect to see two cars rolling over in the deep end like that...

Unhappy

He ended up rolling 13 times before coming to rest.
OMG so lucky and something I never wont to see again

And people wonder why we wont let them run without the correct safety gear, cage, suit, harness etc etc...... it just blows my mind

Dont ever think "it wont happen to me"

when you see things like this, the only good that does come out of it is that it makes you look at what your doing and what risks your taking.

PLEASE ensure you have your harness done up so tight that you cant move at all, and that your helmet is almost choking you it is on that tight otherwise it is pointless wearing it

I think it was his own coolant that got him unstuck.

G'day Bernie.

Feel free to check out the Zazzle and Redbubble sites that have them on my behalf.

Zazzle has the best range of shirt styles and you can even modify the image size/location however are slightly dearer, whilst Redbubble has the best range of colours.
