On a Sunny afternoon way back in the 70's, a group of fearless men took their (then new) 60's and 70's daily drivers/weekend warriors out to the 'ring.

No helmets, no safety gear, no seat belts.

Their inexperience at the wheel and their cars lack of handling was captured on film.

The synchronised BMW drifting, the guy falling out of the beetle, the sheer lunacy of taking to the ring in a beetle convertible full of passengers....

haha, I rofled at the guy falling out of the open door of the beetle on a hard corner. Literally, my wife was like "wtf?!" in the next room and I had to show her :P.

What a pack of idiots. Why didnt anybody get a clue after the first near fatal roll?! And how did the guy on the black bike not take in a mouthful of gravel?
