Im fine with accidents that happen. As you said the spectators know its dangerous. They expect some accidents. They also have a good idea where the car is going to come from.
I also know that he wants to win but there has to be a limit.
The point I missed was that because he continued blindly most likely knowing he would cross the road at some point he would have hit any spectators from their back with them possibly not even knowing he was coming. If they happen to have been standing where he came out. Luckily no one was there & no one was hurt.
That is what makes it irresponsible & him incompetent to have continued like he did in my opinion.
