I'm an Idiot! Nearly Crash My Race Car on Highway at 100kph, All on Camera

While filming an episode with Kahli about why race-cars don't make good road cars, we had an "incident" whereby MT was so busy filming the engine bay, he forgot to re-latch the hood (aka: DUMBASS!)

On the highway, the wind picked up underneath the hood, blocked vision and this could have ended up OH SO BADLY.

With a truck tail gating Kahli driving the Forza R32GTR, MT couldnt hit the brakes, and just had to hope for the best with zero visibility.

In this clip, we have a bit of a look at some of the StreetFX project cars (Soarer Aerocabin, R32 GTR and FD RX7). We then make the trek out to GT Auto Garage, where Kahli gets her first taste of the big power GTR.

Once at GT Auto Garage, we threw Kahli in the driver's seat of the GTR, and tried to get some rolling shots of the cars side by side on the highway, and well... for the rest -you'll just need to watch as MT learns a valuable lesson!

Thankfully everyone was ok. It could have been so much worse. We ended up with a smashed windshield, a busted carbon fibre hood and a dented roof (oh and MT has a bit of a bruised ego)..

I guess at least we got it all on video :\

    • R32 isn't stripped at all, it's full weight.. what are you talking about stripped?

  • Hanging out window filming on public road (permit?), multiple lane changes (without indicating? I didn't see them), communicating car to car on motorway, driving distracted, cutting off the, so called, tailgating truck, vehicle bonnet not secured.....All fun and games.

    • 1) Don't need a permit to film on a public road.

      2) Car has no indicators on the front, but it has rear indicators - it was being driven on a special (paid) permit that allows the vehicle to be transported for purposes of relocation.

      3) There's...

    • Wrong on so many points. But I have the feeling you know everything.

  • Not like this hasn't happened to race cars on a track. Nothing to do with being on the road.

    • agreed.. but road cars have secondary latches that stop this happening. Race cars, generally, do not.

  • Yay. If you've got some irresponsibility and law breaking in mind, it's best not to provide evidence.

  • I would have smashed myself in the face with the mother of all palms.

    Even though it was mostly one person's fault. The person filming, or the other driver should have noticed the hood bouncing before it popped up.
