I was just reading the thread about the tragic death of Ben and Corey in California. I'm a long-time track/autocross enthusiast, and sometimes we take what is an inherently dangerous activity for granted and become complacent. Hearing about a sad loss of life like Ben and Corey brings things back to reality. This past weekend I was up at Lime Rock Park in Northwest Connecticut at a two-day Jaguar club track event. The weekend was open to other marques, and I was there with my Fcar, along with several others. On Friday afternoon, while waiting on the grid for my group to go out on the track, a 550 Marenello in the group before us missed the turn at the bottom of the downhill before the main straight and somehow came hurtling across the grass in the infield, hit the berm at high speed, flipped over the tire wall, landed on its roof, flipped again and landed upright, backwards over the tire wall in the infield. Amazingly, the driver climbed out of the car and was unhurt. The truly scary part of all this was that the roof pillar on the driver's side bent and a good portion of the roof on the driver's side caved in. It is nothing short of a miracle that the driver was not seriously injured. Also amazing is that the air bags did not go off, despite a heavy impact in the nose. The frame and rear suspension were bent badly, and the car is probably totalled. As with all these events, there are plenty of minor excursions off the tarmac. No one gets hurt and cars are not seriously damaged. When something like that happens, though, and you see a car flip over and get totalled, it reminds you that this sport IS dangerous. Driving fast anywhere is dangerous, even on the track in controlled situations. Very much a reality check. So sad to lose Ben and Corey. Thank God the driver at LRP walked away unhurt. Cars can be replaced. People can't. Have fun, but be safe out there, gang.
