Lamborghini crash at speedvegas

Instructor and student deceased.
I saw this particular car out on the track just a few weeks ago......

Two Killed in Lamborghini Crash at SPEEDVEGAS; Closed Until Further Notice ? Speedville

As the drill sergeant said, "I taught you everything you know. I didn't teach you everything I know."

"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so."

It reminds me of the little girl that killed a gun instructor at the range with an Uzi except there is a chance of the car having a mechanical failure.

Was there in August

Wow! I was there in early August driving the GT350 R around the track and had a great experience. Too many possibilities for someone to get on the track and drive like its a video game with no consequences. I listened to my instructor and only got really aggressive with the car and track after 6 laps of getting used to the car and how it performed. Having the instructor in my ear the whole time was really helpful.

I'm saddened to hear about the deaths.

I remember going to Hershey park and they had a ride and drive event going on close to the entrance.
You could see and hear them driving the piss out of the Corvettes.
We took the long way around to the entrance.
I really thought that was a bad spot for them to have it.
If one of those vehicles got loose and jumped the barrier, lots of people would have been hurt.
I've seen cars cross the concrete barriers on the expressway, the ones at Hershey were no different.
