Default Koenigsegg crashes into crowd

How many polish people does it takes to drive a koenigsegg straight



Quote:
Reports on the number of injured range from 17 to 19 people, while four were reportedly seriously injured. As of the time of this writing, event organizers have confirmed that all but five people have been released from the hospital, and those who remain are now in stable condition. Amazingly, no deaths resulted from the accident. The driver, a Norwegian motorist, has been questioned by Polish authorities and was reportedly sober at the time of the accident, and organizers claim on the event's official website that, "He has previous experience with sports cars."

Are those temporary fences supposed to keep the people out or the cars in?

What genius decided that was a proper viewing distance?

Smart people at top of hill. Not so smart at bottom of hill.

Koenigsegg driver is properly positioned at bottom of hill with the rest of the morons.

Just because you can buy the car, doesn't mean you can drive said car!

What does the driver do? Just sink down into his seat?

I tried to tell a cop that when he wanted to give me a ticket for being slightly sideways after a turn and then straightening the car out in 2nd. He didn't understand the weight transfer physics and gave me a ticket for spinning the tires (which I didn't do, it was momentum and braking weight transfer to the front of the car that swung the car out, not acceleration). My argument was I wanted to make the long light I knew was going to change so I kept my car at the speed limit into a left turn at all times staying within the posted speeds. Made the light and turn without incident but the lack of weight on the rear end of the car from late braking while turning caused it to start swinging. I stepped on the gas momentarily to bring it back in line. It was like explaining rocket science to a rooster.

He didn't stay in it.

Yes. Similar to what I'm posting except he wasn't intentionally making a turn. His weight shifted to the front of the car and the rear end got squirrely. If he had kept the acceleration going, he would have been fine.

Egg-Zactly. As soon as he let off he was into (fail) correction mode
