wow, that's very scary indeed. I was immediately concerned for the driver but then for the spectators. Luckily all seems fine... That is really scary. Possible causes of failure..?

Occupation: Living up to his location :biggrin:

I saw that on the news too this morning, I too liked the way he was hacking away his with his steering wheel!

That would have most people shaking it their boots but, and I quote...

Asked if the crash would knock his confidence, he said: "Not really - something broke, it happened"
:crazy:

I'm pretty sure that it was a simultanious failure to both front uprights.
Had it been wishbones then the (rope) teathers built into the wishbones should have held and the wheels would have stayed with the car.......I don't know about the driver (as said above, they are a rare breed)...but I bet the guy that desined the upright was bricking it
