Check this out, has quite a few target market cars and some not real special drivers.
The 80s rear end squat is fantastic!

Aah, the annual Sahoro "Hit the little blue van while driving on marbles" competition.
Given that the cars have slicks and steering wheels you'd have to admit there's some skill being shown...
Almost as skillful as the "crash your Cobra while pulling out of a car meet" events in America.

I'd say the white stuff in the middle of the road at the beginning was concrete dust sprinkled on to soak up oil*, and judging by the antics of the first few cars, perhaps they should have sprinkled on a little bit more.




*which looks like it may have been laid down by the little 4x4 they use to tow cars off the track?
:lol:

That is a excellent video! Some of the cars are getting out of the hole quite well, particularly the Skylines and Zeds. I have no idea what they are doing at the start :lol:
