My son used to do stock car racing in Australia, kind of a worry but they aren't as bad as these, they really are nuts.
Oh yeah' JD the caravan smash ups are fun aren't they!

|Coyote_94YJ||No, not really. Unless your looking for some extreme up close action.|

|Coyote_94YJ||Ya, I noticed that too. In one of those videos there was a guy casually walking away while looking at the wrecked cars around him.|

|JDsDream||The scary part is when they exit the cars in the middle of the carnage.|

I talked with a guy who used to do banger racing and he said you want them to "fold up". It absorbs the impact. He also said they generally use cars that have a fair bit of rust for that reason.
The really crazy part is they aren't using roll cages. They just weld in a flat plate of steel under the driver seat and feet so that part of the car doesn't fold up.

|cavediverjc||Lol.......those are great videos. It's easy to see why alot of those European cars won't pass U.S. crash/safety regulations........they just FOLD up. Those drivers are characteristically crazy Brits!!|
