at Mark I don't think it would have mattered what he hit, it was the way he hit it that killed him i.e. his head hitting the wall at 180mph... doesn't matter if the wall was as soft as sponge, if your head hits it at that speed.... then it's good night Seiena. Many things contributed to this accident, too many cars on the circuit is too easy to moan at, racing on an oval with high bankings so you could easily hit 220mph is more of a concern, then giving drivers even more power with the "boost button" for passing.... for such a fast oval, the power should have been reduced like in NASCAR - even 30 mph reduction would have made a huge difference on a safety aspect. The other major issue... the out-dated chassis design, it flips way too easily! Take Rob Conway's flip in Indy last year for example... had he of gone into that wall head first then the end result would have been the same as last week, Dan was just very unlucky that his head took the full brunt of the impact.
