"critical head injuries" doesn't inspire confidence.

That's a big hit. :( I hope he recovers.

Sucks he did it all because a little 86 was coming up on his corner panel.... Was it when he shifted gears that it lost control? or just too much jandal?

yeah that was my thought, I've seen a tyre deflate at lakeside before under braking and that shit was crazy. Poor guy was a passenger after that.

My point is...that was a dumb place to race, up fromthe shops...its too short a streach and uphill you cant see over the horizon of the hill...

you can take many places along this road all the way from campbelltown to the creek and better long straights were at...abbotsbury etc.. and much safer as its 2 lanes each way..with divider.. plus i think he wasnt prepaired for his kickback as by the video... he just lost total control of his car.. kiddies dont try and txt whilst your racing..

A stupid accident that should not have happened there...in that part of cowpasture road...as no sane person would race right there..blind by view over horizon..

Its hard to feel sorry for stupidity in area of road to race , that was choosen ..and lack of skilled driving.. ..

Any updates on his condition? No updates on the local news. He needs a miracle, to get out of this one...As by the picture above, the whole front end is basically destroyed.
