Have You Seen This? That's not how you park

Posted July 21

THE RACE TRACK — Car racing can be an exciting sport. You've got fast cars, tight turns and unexpected mayhem waiting around every corner.

Personally, I'm not a huge car racing guy, but this video is pretty amazing.

During last year's Porsche Carrera Cup in France, an accident occurred — but this wasn't just any accident. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but a driver was stranded on top of another car for a while.

Soon after the race started, one car was turned while navigating a curve when another car hit it head on. Instead of the catastrophe that usually accompanies a head-on collision, this car simply rode up the front of the other and rested gently on top of the roof. Yes, directly on top. I'm not sure a master crane operator could have stacked those cars more neatly.

I literally had to watch the impact multiple times to really see what happened. It's like a magician was out in the middle of the track and poof! An illusion was performed. I can't say I completely understand what happened, but I can say I was completely impressed by it.
