Most race cars aren’t meant to get air, so when they do, the results are unpredictable.
Racing is by nature a dangerous sport. Some races, like the Isle of Man TT, have high death tolls and are considered some of the most dangerous, and the last remaining “real," sporting events in the world. Others are much safer, but that’s only due to the myriad of safety equipment that ensures drivers can push the limits and live to tell the tale. In this video, we see a dirt racer slide, catch an edge, and fly over a 22-foot fence. Things would have been worse if there was an audience sitting behind it.
Luckily the other safety staple, the roll cage, kept the driver injury-free.
