all i can say is, to the guys who were leaning on the fence, and the spectators sitting behind it, youre all dang lucky that cleared the fences top rail. With that fence being linked together it sure seems to me as though it wouldve been like the old days of land clearing with chains, but with people. :-o

I'm glad the spectators weren't more seriously hurt, but we were sitting up behind them & can't understand why they didn't move sooner. We were up behind them so the car landed across from us, less than 10m away & were getting ready to move as soon as the car started to roll being just as worried about flying debris as the car itself. Were they just not watching that part of the track when it started?
