Dangerous? No one has died in a drag racing incident in this country in what, 20 years at least? It is the safest form of motorsport in this country bar none.

Ok re wording that. The last person to die as a result of a drag racing incident was Jon Boskovic around 2 or 3 years ago. But the accident occured way back when calder was still running group one meets. The long term injuries brought him undone.

Why don't this sons of b**ch journo's use the same line against V8 supercabs. At least 2 drivers promised to never return to the saddle cause they say that sport is too dangerous.


actually, some1 died at heathcote like a week before fordmods went up there about a year or so ago. However theres risks in everything, and the sports is very safe, and its typical of channel 9 to report the news like a gossip magazine.
