Track Day Crashes - A Compilation (HD)
Trackdays can be fun but when they go wrong, they go badly wrong! DISCLAIMER: I do not own the footage, all clips are available publicly on YouTube.
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 money. 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.

How to annoy people on a trackday
It's covered in every track day briefing: if a car has appeared in your mirrors it's because it's faster than you, so please ease off and let them by. Simple. Except when you have selfish people like we see here in the big shiny expensive AMG Mercedes, which no doubt cost a lot of money and clearly has lots of horsepowers. The blue G40 that I've caught is patiently waiting to get past him but gets denied on the start/finish straight. When the opportunity comes up through The Loop the G40 makes good use of it and I try and follow him through, but am wary of what Mr Mercedes might do. As he decides to re-pass me on the straight towards Brooklands I decide I don't fancy having a collision with him so I let the black G40 past which has caught us up. Once again he's denied the pass along the old start/finish straight, and again on the run down from Copse which nearly ends in a collision - you can just about hear me shouting in disbelief. His arm gesticulation is completely justified. Shot from onboard my Caterham at a Silverstone GP track day organised by Silverstone Track Days.
