Oh, and I have raced for real before. There's a difference between being scared and simply being aware.



Thanks man! Just got too tight and found a tiny bit of wall.
Which is why I said they should be using the older cars with safety features comparable to the new ones. Man, you need to take some reading comprehension classes.

And just because you "raced" doesn't mean you're a racing driver. One of the most important things for a racing driver to acknowledge is that there's a chance he could be fatally injured in the sport and the most important aspect is to win whenever possible.

Of course, the FIA stepped in and ruined the sport. F1 sucks completely now. That's what you get for thinking only of safety and not about the racing.

F1 Golden Age was 1970's and early 80's

too bad there where many deaths

I first got into racing when watching stock cars in Canada. However, my first love with Touring Cars came when I used to go watch DTM in the 90's with my Dad. I was at this race at Avus, my dad filmed the accident but stopped because we thought the guy was being burnt alive


I'm glad they removed Avus from the DTM rotation, it was a truly dangerous track. It was just 2 lengths of the autobahn, no real safety barriers etc...

PS2 Gran Turismo with dad really got me INTO racing, though it was far from my first racing game.
