I have no problem with people driving fast, but as a motorcycle rider, I find it really annoying when people cross the line like that. It pisses me off when someone comes flying around a blind corner in the wrong lane.

What's sad is these selfish retards think they are actually good drivers pushing the edge and being brave.

selfish is right- absolutely no consideration for anybody else on the road. Wanna impress me? Hit the road course and whoop my *** with less power.

As a miata driver...I get pissed when I see people cross the line like that.

It takes more skill to stay in your own lane anyway...

The chase car (Gyrenejoe) is a friend of mine in Cali. I moderate a political forum for him. He's got a sweet M3, lots of suspension mods.

That was filmed about a year and a half ago. Joe sent me this vid after I told him I got a Miata. It was very early in the morning (3AM?). They use that stretch because it is out in the middle of nowhere, and all but deserted even during the day. They also station cars at the top and bottom to warn of other motorists, via cellphone which the passenger carries.

The car you see coming up the hill towards the end is another member of the group climbing the hill in order to do another run. Not quite as irresponsible as it appears.

I dont care what kind of twist you try to put on this, it still is very irresponsible. Take it to a real track. Everyone is going the same direction there and they'll have emergency personal if you get in over your head.

i still think its dumb as **** to cross lanes like that, i dont care what time or place, acidents are not planed over time, they happen in fractions of a second...the guy in the vid is a fuckface for it, i dont care how cool of a guy he may be
stay in your lane for others sake, not yours

I don't care where the **** the road is, or what time of day it is. Using both lanes like that, especially at night, is ******* stupid.

If he's on this forum, he should probably stay quiet, unless he wants to get banned fast.

I will admit that it does look cool, but really, that is definitely some of the dumbest driving that I have seen in a long time. Closed course? Go for it...otherwise, keep in your own damn lane. I see so many people cut lines when turning it'd ridiculous. I can't count the number of times I've almost been hit on this one particular 4 lane twisty road near the local mall.
