Great Day, ended bad...

I was attending the Festivals of Speed yesterday and I must say for the first year the turnout was Fantastic!

A gentleman brought his Underground Racing 458 to the airstrip and well....it wasn't long enough, ending rather badly.

Fortunately he's ok but the car was not....

Painful to see. Do you have some details. For example, is it a straight line speed run? If so, didn't the sponsors have "braking" line limits? Best

Snarky remarks on Jalopnik in 3,2,1...

Glad the occupants are OK.

He sold it back to UGR 1-2 months after he bought it i.e. not his car nor accident.

It makes sense that it wasn't GRahal09 driving. He's an Indycar driver, and knows how to handle nasty machines.

Hey everyone. Wasn't me, but yes it was my old car. Bummer, that was a beauty. I heard the driver is ok, but man it was only the second day he had it! Kevin from UGR told me he had just sent the car down there. What a shame.
