    More (nonsense) grist for the P. Walker's daughter's law suit.

    On the other hand, what were the event organizer's thinking?

    jeezus christ. Organizers 100% at fault. Such a horrible course layout and zero safety/zero barriers/zero protection for spectators. Who thought that lining the sides of a runway as a car is barreling down towards them was a great idea. He went off at least 60mph sideways wiping everyone out.

    That's horrible. Looks like he hit a few parked cars, could've been much worse. I've never seen so many people at a track day.

    Another article. Apparently he wasn't even wearing a helmet. Didn't look like he even tried to counter steer.

    That's just awful and negligent.

    On another note, it sounds like the news reader in the first video is the same guy from the "That is how I drive ... flat out" video.
