260 MPH Crash -- In Car Footage

During the October 2010 Bonneville World Finals, Danny Thompson (driver of the world's fastest Mustang) lifted off of the salt at approximately 264.7 MPH. Insufficient downforce sent the car flipping end over end into the air. It travelled over eleven hundred feet before touching down again and continuing to tumble. Danny suffered no injuries, nor did his iPhone 4, which was tucked into the front of his uniform. It was a testament to safety equipment and the astounding work performed by the crew at Hajek Racing.

3000hp Corvette Goes AIRBORNE!
3000 horsepower?! It was no surprise that traction was a bit of a problem as the drivers attempted 200mph passes at the WannaGOFAST Texas 1/2 Mile. We would have NEVER expected to see the car slide 300+ feet sideways before jumping over a two lane road like a rally car! What a save! While this crazy Kelly Bise Racing Corvette wasn't turned all the way up to it's 3,000hp potential, you can see by the TWIN 88mm turbo's tucked under the rear bumper, feeding the 427ci engine... this thing can make some SERIOUS power! Typically parachutes will straighten you out when you get in trouble like the driver here did, but you can see the chute TORN out of the back bumper mid-spin, resulting in a crazy ride. —————————————————— Subscribe ► http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=1320video 1320Video Gear ► http://www.1320video.com/shop/ Facebook ► http://facebook.com/1320videos Instagram ► https://instagram.com/1320video/ Twitter ► https://twitter.com/1320video

Mazda RX-7 Crash at 225 MPH!!
Bonneville Salt Flats: 3rd gen Mazda RX-7 race car trying to beat the land speed record for a production vehicle. At this speed, the tire patch that is touching the ground is LESS than the width of your index finger across each tire. Furthermore each patch is encountering dust and small sand-like particles often. If you could keep the pace with this car and remain standing next to it, you could reach over and push it away from you sideways with little effort. The announcer claims that an additional burst of oxygen in the fuel causes a loss of control, but in all likelyhood, the wind just changes ever so slightly, or began to blow (even lightly) and it was actually this that nudged the cars nose off by just enough to start a flat spin. Yes, a flat spin, like an airplane goes into! No rudder on this vehicle, so no control!
