    Here is a thread where you can post motorsport crashes and wonder how the driver survived.
    I get started with this crash from a practice session in a Brazilian Truck race

    That one is crazy. You see the first crash and think 'what's so bad about that?' then it suddenly :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: and it's a bloody action movie scene.

    i saw a similar blower backfire in charlotte earlier this year (that apparently got some news coverage over here) that i could feel sitting at almost the other end of the track.

    hard to imagine what it must feel like sitting a metre or 2 away from the explosion.
