120-0mph in less than a second causes an aortic rupture. you bleed out in seconds - the blood fills your mediastinum and presses on your lungs, sometimes causing a haemothorax, preventing you from breathing in. not to mention any other internal organ damage you sustain.
A lot of the safety is due to the roll cage. but with the way roll cages are designed, if you werent wearing a helmet you would most likely die from head trauma by whacking into one of the bars, which is the main reason that it is required to wear a helmet on the track. so unless we make it required to wear helmets and 5-point seat belts in public street cars, we probably wont put that kind of safety equipment in them either.
And NASCAR is just as much of a sport as Formula 1. You can`t say one type of car racing is a sport and another isn`t.
its pretty safe now a days considering they are going nearly 200 miles per hour
This crash is exactly the same as what killed Dale Earnhardt. It is simply advances in safety technology. Dale refused to wear a HANS device and Daytona did not have a safer barrier at the time. (Now most tracks if not all have safer barriers and HANS devices are required for all drivers)
But this doesn`t mention the worst part about this crash. It happened during qualifying. He was alone out on the track, nobody to blame but himself. (or mechanical failure)
Not practical. How would you like to drive in a car with only one seat, extremely small, and no AC?
It looks cool though.
but i liked this one because it looks kinda like he floats in air a little
