“I am not one to follow, but are the risks at such high speeds really worth it?”
Nah. We should ban it. We should ban anything where anybody might get hurt. /S
Why don’t you just stay home and hide under your covers.
The rest of us will decide for ourselves what risks we are willing to take.
There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games.
My god, what a thread huh? You’d think nobody ever got killed in sporting events until today.
I can’t believe they canceled the race. Why would they do that?
This is why these guys make millions and millions of dollars.
Seems like some of them want all reward and no risk.
Too bad for Wheldon and condolences to his family but as a guy who’s seen more than my share of family friends die racing, it is what it is.
What an egg shell walking, risk adverse world we live in.
Stop the race? Did they stop the race when Vuky got killed? Muncie? Pollard? Savage? Grant?
Please realize I was horrorified by the video of the accident after learning of his death. I had no desire to anger those who follow racing.
