Talk about speeding on the roads, F1 driver Robert Kubica had a crash while driving in a rally that almost cost him his life. At first surgeons were fighting to save his right hand but now he is moving fingers and much better. He needs a year or less to be back.
Even though I am a big fan of motorsports, I never understood those rally tracks where you are within centimetres from hitting a wall or falling down the cliff. I mean seriously! Who sets the safety standards for rally championships? The Lebanese ministry of public works?
Just watch the movie and you will know what I mean.
man where is that – on the road from Bsharri to Ehden – seriously – I thought Lebanon had the worst mountain roads!
The whole challenge of rallys is that they are driven on non-artificial roads which can’t be modified for the sake of the rally. The burden of safety is on the car manufacturers, and that’s why cars are equipped with roll cages for instance, so that no matter what happens the area where the drivers reside remains untouched in case of a crash.
The manufacturer is going to take the heat on this one, not the sport.
Life with subtitles,
I know that’s the whole point of rallies but don’t you think one should rethink this?
Let them choose safer roads at least, ones with much less risk and not a wall or a cliff on every corner.
