Formula Ford is like other formula race series, with tight racing, open wheels, and open cockpits. Here's how to nearly get decapitated in one.
All it takes is a bit of a pileup and one car can get launched over another. Human heads, helmets and all, would not stand up to a Formula Ford careening across another car's cockpit.
Luckily, this guy at racing in Duffus (Da Unofficial Formula Ford United States) at Columbus, Ohio on the Fourth of July didn't get his head cleaved off by another driver.
And, badass that he is, he calmly re-adjusted his mirror and kept racing. Points for that.
