The driver could have seriously hurt or killed a fan by driving thru there blind. I understand going off course was not his plan. That happend. What I think was stupid was that he never stopped. Comming out onto the course & immediatly across again it the grapes. Hell he missed a couple of spectators but 10-20 feet as he re-entered.
The pole did what the incompetent driver wouldnt do. It stopped him.
Oh boo hoo, I bet you also wrap your kid in bubble wrap and foam equipped with a klaxon before they're let outdoors. Half the time that kind of slide is easily recovered and he made a decision in half a second. The spectators know exactly what they're getting into. I must've missed the shrieks of terror and talk of lawsuits you get with racing this side of the pond.
On an unrelated note, your signature takes up half the space on a 32" 1080p monitor. Might wanna do something about that.
