That's true, but sometimes it depends what kind of track events you attend.
Such as some Shannonville track events I have attended.

Teutonic lapping days are very controlled and safe.

The first one I attended, which was by Car Wings or something, was a little bit more wild. They allowed passing everywhere on the track. Although it's more exciting, there's the danger of one driver colliding into another. In some ways it sort of induces all drivers to drive even more aggressive and since the driver level varies greatly, well, mixing them is not a great idea, esp. if a newbie tries something aggressive on a more experienced driver.

Street accidents, I think, are a bit more dangerous, because you run into higher chances of hurting the innoncent (i.e. pedestrians, other cars not invovled in the street racing)

mike why are u trying to outsmart me?? hahaha jks bud.....thats tru...but see we r saying that...but i can bet u anymoney on our next cruise there is gonna be a lil racing. but aslong as u have ur limits its not that bad.

Hahah yeah, I can see a mini-race going on for any future meets. But yeah, partly it does come down to knowing your limits.

Oh my god! Someone actually lived! That car is a well built BMW and not a little "Honda Pop Can"! Could you just imagine if it was! :eek:

This is why us maX members must stop racing each other on the cruises. If we want to start racing each other then we should organize lapping days like other forums. In that post only one out of at least three people could have died. Could you imagine if that F-150 was a little Honda with a family in it?

I'm not here to rant and rave my ass off, but when I get my E30 back it is going to the track and shows. The '73 2002 I bought it for daily driving since it is considerably slower. I have realized after I smacked up the Geo that it dosen't take much to get into an accident. And I have this feeling that someone will be seriously hurt or killed in one of our cruises and then people will realize.
*no-no*
