[OT] Who said hitting a tree was a bad thing?

  1. That's one VERY lucky Marshall!
  2. There's nothing like the feeling of being a trackside marshal and having a car heading your way. Basically you hit the ground so the fence can do it's job and pray that the bits off the car don't hit you, bikes are worse cos they bounce too much.

    My best is a Formula Ford passing me at head height about a metre away when I as working the "Tank" marshal post at Winton about 12 years ago.
  3. The tree seems to have taken it well.

    And that's one stiff car body With all the crumple zones on the ends, and the stiff central cell, that may not be the most comfortable way to run a car into a tree. I'll bet the occupants were well shaken.
