yeah if you listen to the commentary (sif smh did) they've been saying it'll be about 3 months recovery

the problem is the prototypes basically have the driver's seat on the floor of the car so when it gets airborne, the force from the impact with the ground goes straight into the driver. Heaps of them get back injuries from being airborne

He walked out. He'll be fine. If his back was properly broken they would have taken about 2 hours to get him out of that car.

ROFL that explains why they got so upset when I called him out on their Facebook comment. They are claiming that the fault lies 100% on the Ferrari. Fuck that.

Marcus Ambrose scored pole for the Michigan sprint cup race.

He's been looking a lot more comfortable on the ovals this year, been getting some good results too.

Edit. He came in 9th. That's not too bad.

If he isn't breaking the rules, he isn't a "serial offender"

Rather than rage on the driver(s), complain to FIA to change the rules instead

The rule makes sense, slower cars move for the fast cars, but that doesn't make it ok to dive into spaces that aren't there and expect the slower car to have time to react. For some reason people seem to think that it is ok. It's a 24 hour race, surely waiting that extra 3 seconds till it is safe won't hurt his chances too much.

But I still wasn’t alarmed, I still felt it was a completely legitimate move and thought he would stay to the left, which it looked like he was doing. I made the apex of the corner, started to brake and I was almost out of the corner when I felt contact on the left rear.

Uhhhh why is that? You were the ****s going on about safety in the F1 thread a few weeks ago and here you are defending a bloke that broke his back via unsafe driving.

Gruso he can explain it like that but the footage shows the Ferrari taking its line well before the prototype, to me anyway.

please tell me where i have been defending anyone here.

I said it was a racing incident. I also think they're both partly to blame which is why it's called a racing incident.

Hey, that's you in that car on that track.

Timely, I was watching this today:

Media Player
Onboard Manthey vs Rowe 5.Lauf VLN 2012 - YouTube

Crazy skilled drivers battling for position in traffic. On board all the way.

[edit] Info from reddit person:

Quote:

It was the 5th race of the VLN series, which is widely regarded as the highest German racing class, despite the DTM circlejerk that's going on currently.
The season consists of about 10 4-hour-endurance races, with the season highlight being the 24h of the Nürburgring in late spring.
In this particular race from saturday, the SLS won with a gap of 0.3 seconds over the Manthey after 22 laps.
Racing the Manthey Porsche in the vid was in fact Marc Lieb, who won the 24 hours four times already.

Tis a snowboard bag containing 2 boards.. They were a bit sus when we rocked up, but we strapped that shit down so hard, they tried to move it and it just shook the car, so they let us go.


My friend then stalled at the start line infront of hundreds of people.... awkward
