Go onboard with Doug Peterson at the start of the 2012 June Sprints at Road
America as he gets pinched against the front straightaway and rolls the car
at 100mph. Five competitors caught the shunt on tape - Carson Weeder, Beau
Borders, Sam Lockwood, Robert Noell, and Steve Jenks. Each driver had a
wild ride of his own - but nothing compared to what Doug went through.
Fortunately he walked away, but the same can't be said for his brand new
Worst Figure 8 Crash @ Slinger Super Speedway Ever!!!!! 9/11/2011
This is a video of the worst figure 8 Crash Ever @ Slinger Super Speedway.
Ryan Lovald just bought Shane the Shark Beckers car and this was the first
race racing that car. Ryan Lovald hit Rick Bruskiewicz right behind the
Right Front Tire and Ryan Rolls. BOTH DRIVERS WALKED AWAY. You can here a
scream right as the hit happens. That was Nicki, Ryans Fiance. You can see
a black smoking dot to the right of Ryans car as well that is his motor,
the motor came out of the car. Ryan was wearing his INTERSECTION CONNECTION
shirt he just made up as well. That was a connection. Ryans knee was
hurting and Rick had a small cut. What happened with me in the race was
going into turn 3, Bill Shavlik ran into me and knocked my car into neutral
which you will here on the in car camera video, I then tried to move up the
track to get out of the way and Scott Goetzke was going around me which I
didnt see, We joked before the race about hitting eachother and me getting
even from the beginning of the year, I never knew he was there. He then
slammed me a few times before spinning out and hitting the rollover ramp. I
would have done the same thing to him if the tables were turned there so I
understood why he hit me back. I then pulled up next to him at the start
finish line. We talked and I explained what happened in my car. Scott
understood and we shook hands. No big deal there. Its funny now cause
everyone thought myself and Scott were fighting but we were really just
talking about what actually happened and getting on the same page. I want
to thank everyone that was a fan of the cop car. I will most likely not be
driving it next year and it is sold. I know pretty much everyone just likes
the car and doesnt even know who I am so you will be happy to know it will
be coming back as the cop car next year, just with a different driver. It
was a blast and I might do this again in the future but for now I'm done. I
want to thank my sponsors that have been with me from the beginning of me
racing. Guerndt's Bar in St. Lawrence, Keiths Marina, Kettle Moraine
Properties (Bob Hart) P.W. Walsh, Race and Street Graphics and Daves Lanes
of Hartford. Figure 8's are a blast and it is a testament to the safety
equipment in race cars that with a wreck like what happened in this video,
they can walk away. Thank You again.... Brandon Wolf.
SCCA Spec Miata, starting from the back ends in crash
Check out some of my fastest laps here:
Hardship during my 3rd SCCA race weekend!
A stretched connecting rod in the engine during practice meant the car
needed to be taken back to Premier Auto Service by owner Ed Railton, who
then worked through the night in order to rebuild the engine and make it
ready to race.
That meant I missed qualifying and had to start in the back for Regional
#5. There were about 60 cars in the race. I'm not sure how many I passed.
My coach, Ric McCormick, was on the radio spotting for me.
Then the 08 car missed a shift. My car has street Exhaust so it's quieter than most of the other
cars. When the 08 missed his shift I thought it was mine. I looked down,
saw that things were fine, and when I looked up I was on a collision course
with the 08. I jinked to the outside, because the right side was filled
with cars (the 08 and the 10). The 08 didn't see me, and when he looked up
from correcting his gearbox, he saw the 10 to his inside. He must have
reacted by steering to the outside slightly, which was enough to punt both
him and I to the outside.
The first hit was very light, and it only put some tire donuts on the door.
But as we spun and I came to a rest, his car hit mine in the right rear,
which bent a couple suspension components. The car didn't track straight
after that and could not corner very well, so I had to retire.
Fortunately the fix was fairly simple (compared to rebuilding an engine)
and I was ready for qualifying in the afternoon, thanks to Ed's hard work.

Can-Am Cars 2008-Monterey Historics
1966-74 Can-Am cars racing at the Monterey Historic Automobile Races. Lots
of action at the Corkscrew. Bobby Rahal goes from last to first in the

McLaren F1 GTR vs. CanAm rockets
Rennen "Trans-Atlantic Prototype Challenge" im Programm vom Spa Six Hours
2011. Ralf Kelleners im McLaren F1 GTR von 1997 steht zwar auf Pole
Position muß sich aber zunächst den CanAm Raketen der frühen Siebziger
Jahre wie dem McLaren M8F geschlagen geben. Es geht doch nichts über 8,8l
Hubraum. Das Rennen gewann Kelleners nach 14Runden mit 16Sekunden Vorsprung
vor dem McLaren M8F von Peter Hoffmann, dessen schnellste Rennrunde war nur
1,3Sekunden langsamer als die des F1GTR.
Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
