Long and short please provide info and if possible videos of the Maddest motorsports you know of. It can be purely amateur and outlawed (not officially sanctioned) or more insanely still, fully sanctioned.

 

Also please feel free to post links and info on odd motorsport moments such as bizarre escapes, calamities crashes and general madness in motorsports. The things that keep motorsports interesting.

 

The net is a large place and hard to search alone so any direction on the matter is very welcome :)

 

To start are these not the most insane bastards in motorsport.

Macau is a notorious wrecking yard. WTCC. F3 and Superbikes all race there and no race goes by without at least 10%-30% of the field being wiped out (depending on the event).

This is true. The track layout and the inevitable danger makes it a surreal atmosphere. There were double fatalities during support races a few years ago. I'll miss WTCC racing there. :l

 

As for the thread, I would recommend the Havoc series. It was a nice compilation of various crashes from the 80s to 90s.

 

 

 

Unfortunately you won't be able to find full versions of those shows on YT, as Duke Video does an insane job of taking down copyrighted content(as I've learned twice from strikes)

In fairness to the boy (it'll be the only positive on his resume for some time) he could have been christened Taki Inoue (self confessed worst F1 Driver) ;):)

Saw that. In credit to the guy he has accepted his failings as a driver and moved onto things he may be better at, instead of shying away in a self imposed shame and belief that the world is against him. For that I salute him.

 

 

"No one has learned until they have tried and failed."

 

"Those who merely succeed should not be trusted as far as you can use them for they hide the truth of their failure."

 

"Failure is the first step to success. Fail enough and you can only succeed (I hope :) )"

 

"Knowledge only comes from trial and failure, even if it's not your own. :p:D "

I don't know if this would fit the topic. For those that haven't heard of it, ARCA is a stock car series in the US (kind of similar to nascar but a completely separate series with it's own rules). Anyway back on point, this series was notorious (and still is sometimes) for bad driving, horrible racing behaviors and general craziness. Every time they raced at the big tracks, it was more like watching a demo derby than a proper race. This was mostly due to a lack of driver skill/talent. So one race in particular that stands out was the '96 round at atlanta speedway.

 

 

 

There's five parts. Remember this is all from one race. The track itself was mental, especially with the backstretch wall opening.

It's more than appropriate for the thread. Any kind of antics that would constitute sport (be it F1 to Rednecks jumping their super jeeps into a bog or up a mountain). The only things that I don't want here are antics and crashes on the roads. That isn't sport as it firstly breaks numerous laws, if even riskier than being mad in a contolled area and involves unwilling members of the public. In saying that, one person or group of people showing off doesn't constitute sport. More than one group or person competing is ;)

I have a fascination for fatal crashes, are those allowed? Not Tom Pryce level, though.

Not really. Out of respect to those involved I would appreciate fatalities be remembered with the utmost reverence and not paraded as entertainment. I would be best form to simply forbid any fatal activities. In the case of serious injury, please be mindful that someone was hurt and let it be known that someone in the video was hurt (broken noses. ribs and ankles will be taken as par for the course so no need to preface these).

I have respect for them, but look at it this way. Had those guys not given their lives for the sport, we'd never have had the safety revolutions that we do now.

 

But yes, I agree that it shouldn't be paraded as entertainment.

 

On a less serious note, here is Mark Webber learning how to fly.
