"My hat is off to the guy for taking a risk for charity."



"how many of us would risk injury for the benefit of others?"



i mean this with all due respect, but risk?

"Celebrities, including Griffin, were to split a pool of $250,000 for their favorite charities."



with a red-carpet list that "...included Wycleaf Jean, Reggie Bush, Bow Wow, Jackie Chan and Nadia Bjorlin..." they could have each easily donated the 250,000USD per charity, instead of splitting a total 250,000 between a dozen charities. 250k twelve ways is better than nothing, but this was an organized press event where some media a-listers wanted a 'humanitarian' reason to have some totties (closed racetrack), race elite sports cars against each other, and have people see them do it (positive face time).


once again, no malice intended, but i just see a bunch of pampered moguls making a day of sport for themselves (read: next to no sacrifice) and reaping applause for it.

let's see: it's wet, wheel man (eddie) has NO sports car driving experience (in all likelyhood), and driver's are playing with automobiles that they have NO personal interest (ownership) in.

I wish I could get invited to these events.

That looks to be exactly what happened. You can see that he locked the brakes. There's a little bobble on turn in and then he locks the brakes straight into the barrier.

If you are in the fortunate position to be "asked" to buy an Enzo, you won't miss the $1.5M. However, replacing the car could be a problem.

The repair bill on that Enzo will likely be more than the "take" for Charity.

That was a lot funnier than Undercover Brother.



Then again, so is a seal hunt.

Default No ABS?

Examining the video, the car leaves the turn in a straight line with the wheels turned. No anti-lock braking system?
