Teenagers + limited driving experience + low visibility + very high powered car + high speed thrill ride = tragic outcome

i don't understand how he could drive that car with that HP and performance without a full harness?

The only help a harness would have achieved in this accident would to have kept his body behind the wheel unfortunately he would still be dead and all his mates.

I drove Leburpor's M5 back from Tassie and the power made me speechless nether mind a car full of kids without any experience going flat out.

This kids father must be going through hell but what was he thinking giving his 18 yr old kid this car i think his father was totally irresponsible.

Gee how ones thoughts change when we become a dad ourselves.

Does your LP640 have a full harness? They're both road cars that occasionally get some track work. The only relatively safe track work is what you're doing with the cup car thing.

i don't track road cars anymore, and the road cars i drove didn't have the MEGA performance of a carrera GT nor the track i drive on doesn't allow the speed to be at what the GT was when it struck the concrete wall.

I think it is extremely sad when something like this happens.

At the speeds they were going in an uncontrolled environment, there is no chance they would survive.

Needless to say, inexperienced drivers cannot be allowed to drive very powerfull cars, whether they be exotics or highly modified less expensive cars.
