But it's certainly no reason to stop racing.
Racing is dangerous, that much we can say with certainty. Recent advances in safety equipment mean that the sport is far safer than it's ever been in the past, but something like a whole car flying through the air and missing your head by inches would still be a harrowing experience. OK, so in the case of the following video, it's a kart, but we're fairly certain that that's still more than enough to ruin your day in a pretty serious way.
But is the driver in the video phased by the experience? No he is not, he just fixes his mirror and gets back into the race like a pro.
