Sorry to say, but it had to happen eventually


8 people were killed and 12 were seriously injured in a San Bernardino
offroad race when one of the cars crashed and went into the crowd.
"The crowd was standing within 10 feet of the track with no guard rails
separating them from the speeding vehicles".

I have seen a lot of videos of crashes all over the world, and wondered when
one of these would happen. I think there are times when the crowds are so
close, particularly in some foreign countries where they run over road
courses, that a death toll of 50-100 would be possible.
I have been to these races, and they are exciting to watch. At the first
one, a dirt race truck kicked out a softball size rock that went about five
feet over my head. I was fairly close to the track. Ever since, I pick my
looking spots with safety in mind.
Condolences to families and friends.

This has happened repeatedly on the various California "Baha" runs.

Steve,
Sorry for multiple posts! Maybe the 3rd one will be the charm. All I meant to say was, "airshow de'javu"
