Thanks for sharing that. It was pretty good. I like the tire on fire...

Respect! If any of us think we are fast. Think again. Great cover across the various disciplines of Motorsports. Simoncelli # 58; Very touching.

Absolutely amazing. Great find. Impressive how much the wheel/tire assembly moves in all planes on the F1 cars as they bounce off the curbs. Watching this reinforces my belief--unless you are totally staying off of the curbs/rumble strips, it pays to invest in your equipment. Don't cheap out on track wheels, wheel studs, bolts, etc.

The slip angle of the bikes was also an eye-opener. They're sliding through corners on the edge of one tire.

Image of Dan Wheldon at the end was a nice touch.

Great vid. LeMans 2012 had the super slow-mo down one of the straights, which they used here. I recommend searching for it if it's on YouTube. Never saw the eyes before of the drivers.
