Video of the Week: Safety on Track
We’ve seen numerous racing accidents captured on camera. Those moments might look spectacular, but they can also be fatal. It’s very fortunate that many circuits have great safety standards to reduce such cases, protecting both the driver and the spectator. However, the opportunity to watch what goes behind the barrier which withstands the significant force of a car’s impact it’s so rare to capture. In this Video of the Week we watch how those barriers actually behave under an S2000 crash. You won’t see the car but you shall see the protection offered under the scenes at Tsukuba Circuit. Look how close it was, and imagine what would have happened, without any presence of safety standards and precautions.
