    Default The Hamsters Crash

    I don't know if anyone else heard this today but on our local radio station (in Leeds) - Radio Aire - they said that the guys that run the dragster that the Hamster crashed in have now come out and said it wasn't his fault that the car crashed.

    They, apparently, first said that it was his fault because he didn't follow their safety procedures and guidlines.

    Now they're saying that a tyre blew out and it wasn't his fault - don't they watch Top Gear then??????

    It looked like a blowout to me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The argument I heard is that he was told he was told not to use the foot brake and deploy the parachute if anything were to happen, they say the parachute would of kept the car in a straight line The footage shows there was enough time to hit that button. But put me in the same car with the same blow out my reactions and instincts would probaply be to hit that brake pedal Who knows?

    Yep, not being a dragster racer his instinct would have been to brake, mine certainly would be. Thats why he shouldn`t have been driving it though I guess, not enough training ...

    Its the same thing with most people, the instinct is to brake when the sh** hits the fan. Its more to think about when there is a problem - Press Button not Brake Pedal. There are a lot of things to take into account though, like positioning on the runway, surface conditions etc that will affect how the dragster reacts.

    Ah well, at least he is alive and kicking - even thought it might not be that high of a kick (haha)

    At 300mph+ if I had a blowout I'd want an ejector seat let a lone a parachute -

    I'd also want a very large supply of bogroll !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
