Zak O'Sullivan has just won the F2 Feature race at Monaco starting from 15th on the grid!!!

A long first stint keeping him out there as the laps ticked out, and fortunately a VSC was called 2 laps from the end for a crash which another driver staying out that long caused, and O'Sullivan made it into the pitlane just before the VSC was called, meaning he exited the pits in the lead for the last lap sprint.
Hadjar (2nd) is FUMING.
That level of rage from Hadjar isn't normal.

Lewis going full send


He did well, but I hope he puts a roll of paper in the fridge & remembers to grab it before he takes a seat on the throne.

Might be a good idea to stay home for the following 24 hours, too. Just in case.

The TRUE definition of terror, is realising you're three minutes from the closest 🚻, and that you have about three minutes 10 to get there. 😱
 
Horrific crash at Castle Combe with a car going driver's-side door into the Pitlane separation barrier at top speed.

Driver has some injuries to his pelvis, but isn't in life-threatening danger.

7:30 in this video.



A few tyres Infront of a spike of metal isn't brilliant. Pitwalls have to start somewhere on every track and it's always difficult to find a way to start the wall safely, but this just isn't it.

Lucky to be alive after a crash like that & the damage to the car. Wow!
 
I've always considered the riders of the North West 200 to be braver. Yes, the IOM TT is fearsome, but for the majority of it you're on your own; the NW200 has you actually racing alongside others for most of the race.

Yes, I've seen that too and they're just as crazy.

As far as I know, most of the Irish Road Racing guys take part in the IOM TT, so equal amounts of respect from me.
 
Both drivers are ok, but that must be such an awful feeling, being in the Audi, knowing there's nothing you can do anymore at that point.

Holy crap, what happened? Did the Audi have a brake failure or lost control?

That is super composed for someone who almost got wiped out by a car striking a concreate barrier.

I honestly don't think he had time to do anything else.

Probably won't sink in just how lucky he is until he sees the replay & just how close he came to not being around.

So glad they all got out ok.
 
Earlier crash from the Spa 24H. Just insane how the later cars are still going pretty much full speed despite yellow flags being out.
They all deserve to be penalized afterwards by the FIA. This could've ended so much worse.
 
I think today I found one of the dumbest comments ever made in relation to motorsport.

Nothing funny, but complete MADNESS!

2024 Isle of Man TT Race​


I just came across this and went to bring it up but it seems I'm quite late. I've watched quite a few TT onboards over the years but this is the first one I've seen that's actually close to the rider's POV rather than being on the bike itself and it just further cements my thoughts that these guys are absolute madmen.

No video of the actual impact, just the start of the accident but plenty of pictures of the aftermath.

Ott Tanak taking part in Rally Eatonia as a warm up for Rally Latvia next weekend, completely totalled his Hyundai. Both Tanak and Jarvejoa walked away.
