I heard the screeching tires and the impact from my office, and grabbed the camcorder.
Day-amn! This graduate of the Lance Briggs School of Hi-Performance Driving had hit the retaining wall so hard, it sheared the spokes right off the rim of one of the wheels. Steel and rubber doughnut, anyone?
Clear, dry road, gentle curve, wide, well-marked lanes, beautiful, mild 50-degree Friday morning -- how do they continue to do it? Oh, well, as long as they do, you'll see it here first.
I'll let you be surprised with --- the REST --- of the story. Watch, enjoy, and if you're feeling a little schadenfreude for a Vette owner with too much money and too little common sense, you're human.

Corvette Crashes During An AutoCross Event
This is the first time we've ever witnessed an accident at a speed ventures autocross. It was a pretty fast track and it was his first time up since his last break so the tires were pretty cold & so was the track. Unfortunately the driver never touched his brakes after he lost control. The driver was shaken up quite a bit, but he walked away.

Corvette c5 z06 blows up
I am posting this video cause you don't see the full version with the reason for the explosion. The video is from http://SpdKilz.com
"This is a tribute video to my friend (and President of my car club, Shocker Racing) James' 2001 Z06. He was at the track on 4-9-05 and we think his fuel pooled in his intake manifold and BOOM. BTW, he was using a window switch for his Nitrous, and had the setup professionally installed. All that other BS you hear online is just that. This was a technical malfunction within the system."
Audio(Green Day - Good Riddance) had to remove as apparently putting in the video is copyright violation. I would like for it to be clear that this video was never mine nor have I ever claimed possession of the video material or audio material.

Texas Mile Corvette Crash - March 2011
The Texas Mile record holder for a Corvette at 224mph!
This Corvette was built by Hinson Motorsports - over 1400rwhp
I don't have the 224mph pass on video but I caught the 221mph pass.
It looks like one of the tires went out and caused the car to veer hard to the right. The driver was ok, he walked away from the crash.

Tow Truck Drivers Bad Day
Talk about a bad day at the office...
Thanks to vfdcapn for the video
Cable snap right next to tow truck driver. Eureka, California, 1-11-11
As above. They left the connecting chain under the Land Rover's front tire and rolled the power on anyway. Driver is the same from the previous "tow truck driver almost crushes hand" video. Note my wrong call on the safest place to stand. 4-car collision January 11, 2011 Eureka, Ca.
This is how the wreck went down: the gray pickup at far right was speeding on a three-lane street. A car in front of him slowed suddenly and to avoid hitting it he swerved into the Mitsubishi, which was parked. The Mitsubishi was forced under the Land Rover, which was also parked. The Rover couldn't move forward due to hitting another parked car in front of it, which had been removed by the time I rolled video.
