**ORIGINAL** Truck accident caught on police camera Motorway M621 (M62 Crash Leeds West Yorks UK)
This accident (6 May 2010) happened on an urban motorway/highway (M621
junction 2, Leeds) when a truck trying to return to the driving lane
clipped a Porsche Boxster travelling parallel (lane capture/clinching) in
the nearside blind spot of the truck driver's view, having been given way
onto the carriageway 0.4 mile (0.64 km) earlier at junction one. The car
connects with the truck's steer wheel causing complete loss of steering and
pulls away just in time before the 44 tonne truck rolls over. The contact,
emergency braking and inertia causes the trailer carrying 30 tonne sand to
topple. The blind spot is a documental accident risk and with Divine grace
no one was injured. This has to be a lesson for drivers with small
vehicles on the dangers associated with a truck blind spot.
Speed was an issue with all vehicles concerned. The first truck in the
video was being followed by the second truck, under employer's instruction,
by an experienced new recruit on his first day with the company. Notice
how even after the accident the first truck, driven by the boss's son does
not stop to enquire or assist. WHY? Thank goodness it all happened in
view of CCTV cameras and dismissing any rumours, accusations or lies as a
result. Safe driving to all viewers and remember ALWAYS use the SEAT
BELTS. It could be the ONE & ONLY chance!

Another beautiful day at Sebring, getting my car dialed in runnind

first hot lap with a spin. too much throttle too soon.
Focus RS500 vs Boxster on the track - Auto Express
Both cost around £35,000, one is a rear-wheel drive sports car the other a
hot hatch, but which is fastest?
If you have £35,000 to spend on a performance car you've got some tough
decisions to make. The Porsche Boxster and Ford Focus RS500 are both
scintillating cars to drive, but go about putting their performance on the
road in completely different ways. We wanted to find out which was quickest
over a short, twisty course in conditions typical of a UK road.

Porsche Boxster S 987 3.8 X51, modified by TTP, 400ps.
GT3 control arms front and rear, every bit from Tarrett engineering, GT2
brakes front and rear, Quaife LsD, JiC suspencion, GT2 antisway bars, TTP
scavenge pump system (very important part), using worn rear Michelin slicks
27/68/18 and worn matador front 24/64/18.
Megara circuit : 1.04.6
Had a lot of understeer due to different compound front and rear tires (did
not have time to find better combination before the trackday), but still
the car made very good lap times, being very steady with all times in
between 1.04.6 to 1.05.5sec
Next time I will use new Michelins, they seem to be the best choice.
Nice sound isn't it?
