    Wow. I can't believe that wasn't several dead people.
    Man, people are stupid.

    Doubt anything will change as far as policy - this is still the wild west of motor sports - compared to F1 for eg. Spectators get run over and are told to 'smarten up' instead.

    A bent skid is not a huge deal, but the real danger here was a stuck skid in the roof rack for eg. That would have resulted in an almost immediate crash. The pilot is damn lucky and was likely canned after this event.

    HDR, the ships owner/operator, is no doubt seeking a new pilot .... LOL

    A helicopter crash is probably in the race budget.

    It is if they can afford fuel for that 5 tonne rectangle to plow through sand! I literally felt the earth warm by 0.0065 degC watching that video snippet.
    Then I heard Trudeau tears and James Cameron weeping while they were giving AIDS to each other.
