That sucks! I wonder if his insurance will pay? Technically, he wasn't racing. It's really no different than rear ending someone in line to park at the races. But I bet they deny coverage.

I don't use the phrase "epic fail" ever, but I feel it's completely appropriate here.

Was the VW the car the was in gear or was it the car behind it? If so he should have to pay for all of it.

It amazes me how many people can't figure out the stage lights or figure out how to exit at the end. Sort of scary at times that these kids get these high Hp cars and can't drive

Here a look at MRP after a violent wind storm whipped through the south west BC yesterday. It looked like a frick'n war zone. Personal and property damage occurred, but we came out OK stuff was still in the trailer.

No sir. I know when to let off. He was a dip isht. But it was hilarious to watch. Slow motion. I only ran twice and put it up. Ate a belt. And my new centerforce isn't what I thought it would be.
