What happens when you throw a 500 pound motorcycle down a dirt road, way out in the desert? Fortunately, we humans have the capacity to improvise tools. This rock looks like a hammer to you too, right?
A driver of a modified Ford GT died earlier today at a standing mile event at California's Mojave Air & Space Port, according to a Ford GT forum. The driver, known as "Jack," drove off the track at approximately 210 MPH before flipping and crashing. UPDATE
Honda has put its 4,255-acre Mojave Desert proving grounds up for sale, complete with 7.5-mile oval, 4.5-mile road course and support buildings. Buy it and you can show off your motorcycle hooning skills to the desert rabbits.
A racing truck lost control and drove into a crowd late Saturday night during the California 200 Mojave Desert night race, killing eight and seriously wounding at least 12 others. Witnesses describe the aftermath as a "nightmare" scene. UPDATE.
