Default What a week!

This is just to get a bit off my mind. Call it Internet therapy.

I run motoring events in the US and Europe, and last week I was on the road with the American event. A fun event in $500 cars.

But one thing slightly marred the week which involved a couple of our teams when they came to the aid of a stricken biker on Deals Gap/Tail of the Dragon in Tennessee. Biker was one of three going over the Tail, straightened a corner, and went down a ravine. He was found by another biker 30 minutes later, and our two teams were first on site. They climbed down 25 feet, made him comfortable (volunteer firefighter) so he could breathe properly, chatted to him for 2 more hours whilst others got help.

He had a fatal heart attack whilst being transferred to the ambulance. So if you have a bike, please be careful.

The second event was heading back from New Orleans yesterday and that awful stretch of I-10 that floods very easily. Friend was following me, and although I decelerated when I saw standing water, he wasn't so fortunate, and his little Versa headbutted a crash barrier at about 50-60. (We were both under the 70 limit, but you don't scrub much speed on water).

He walked away without a scratch, but the car is a write off.

But dayam, what a strange few days!!
