    I think the Mazda was a total write off. I also think this video was sent to the officials and action is being taken again the offender.

    Notice how he looks in the right mirror before making contact and moving across...

    Dam! That was a heavy impact!

    I wonder what happened to the offending driver?...

    And I think this video was sent to police for an attempt of murder... seems to me like a heavy impact. Now imagine there were no tires.

    Looks like an angry and inconsiderate Sim driver who's just been entered into his first real race, and was still in the game frame of mind - not that I'd ever do that even on a sim!

    I really feel for the poor victim. All that money down the drain, through no fault of his own :(

    I'd have waited for him in the pits to be honest...that would've been the longest pit stop, ever.

    These guys need a place to drive where they can get away from that kind of thing. Anyone want to set up a company and provide them with safe and fair driving?

    He could have caused serious injury. What a nutcase. And according to the youtube comments, the driver who uploaded the video may not be able to race again due to heavy repair bill :(

    There must be a legal claim against this kind of behaviour. Racing incident this was not. Violent behaviour/endangering others on the racetrack is certainly not covered by the waiver of liabilty every driver signs.

    Good luck in court against that bastard.

    if i the driver in the video, onboard, he moves right fine! i go to the left...punching him in the rear left while turning to right ... he would have been totally out of balance headed to the nearest right wall!

    But of course its racing its part of the second and things like that happen, but move like this ... hell no

    This car might lost its front, i will make sure the guy who forced into this lose his front teeth either!
