I've heard that from a lot of old hands...

I can't imagine going that fast. One wrong move and your dead.

We take every precaution, full ten point cage, padding all over it where I could strike it, high tech helmet, full race suit with FR undergarments, FR gloves and shoes, five point, three inch harness, full containment race seat, ten lb foam fire system, remote battery kill switch, etc... The nice thing is there is very little to run into out there... There is a building or two, a couple of dirt berms, but for the most part it's open area. It's an old Naval Airstation runway...
