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

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.
