We had simmilar situaltion in Poland, and it finished with really not nice situation.
All drivers must have this in mind, that it might be bloody dangerous!
why driving into smoke is bad
Sometimes its pretty impactful and not always the drivers fault -
The Fords fault in my opinion.
Spun, huge donut/burnout (why?), then stalled and sat invisibly in the middle of the track.
100% the Falcons fault. Anyone who spins and tries to style it out by doing a big gay burnout on a drift day needs a slap
*notes for next drift day
surely the point of the guy flagging the cars to go at the start is there so they ensure there are no obstructions and it is safe...
Why didn't the marshals stop any more cars going for a run when there's one in the middle filling the track with smoke?
Radio the the guy at the start to stop cars going?
LOL OP at the title..... Drifting into smoke is part of the game.
The only blame can solely be put on is the marshalls. Fuck heads didn't raise the flag, which would of stopped the boys from entering.
No flags = Run is all good to be completed.
Dude in the falcon pulled a dickhead maneuver but i think its more a case of an amateur driver struggling to turn it round and subsequently busting 2 doughies, to hi-ho it out of there.
100 percent the marshalls fault.
falcon idiot for doing donuts...
marshalls idiots for no flags
marshalls again for the RAPID response to the 86 driver.. wtf!! where were they lol
That's a nasty one.
Falcon driver must have learnt in E36's
From my point of view, the driver of the ae86 could clearly see the smoke, he's just as much to blame as all the other parties. He had more than enough time to pull out, didn't, drifted through the smoke but couldn't quite make it through the car he hit.
Everyone is responsible in this situation, the falcon driver for being a douchebag, the ae86 driver for not being aware/ not pulling out, the Marshall's for not doing there job properly! Surely there should be a Marshall point before the entry to wave flags?
As as far as response to the accident, that was appalling!
Maybe I'm wrong, but just me two pence.
Most blame is on Marshalls not doing there job, Guy in the Falcon is next in line, but most would prob do the same maybe not as extreme, guy in the AE86 could have backed off gone round the smoke and carried on, but hey everybody wanted to be a hero in this scenario.
Think they should invent smokeless tyres for these events...lol.
Which is why UK drift days are so full of not needed accidents, because people are dicks and do things like that all the time. Usually in E36s and R33s lol.
Marshalls shouldn't flag for smoke, but deffo should if they saw the car had span out.
Smoke isnt an issue, its part of drifting, if people feel they have the balls they should be happily allowed to drift straight through, but they don't expect to find some Falcon in the middle of it doing a burnout.
After initially watching it several days ago I thought the accident was the Falcon driver fault, end of. However, the enormous cloud of smoke was there even before the 86 left the line. The driver of the blue (R31?) 4 door came out of the drift as he couldn't see a way ahead and drove around the obstacle at a safe speed. The 86 driver shouldn't need a man with a flag to tell him it's dangerous to risk driving through a cloud of thick smoke that completely blocks your view ahead, that's common sense. When being judged it may be necessary to take more risk but not in a practice/ demo scenario.
Drivers are told not to do smokey 360's when they spin at DWYB, doesn't mean you can drive straight into them and all the blame is there's. Take avoiding action to miss people who spin, even if they are driving like a twat!
Just my thoughts.
I have to say my first thought was marshalls, and whilst I don't think the ford ripping up the tyres was necessary it's the marshalls job to flag a slow or stationary vehicle to oncoming drivers.
the falcon driver and marshals at fault, if you look at :27 (first vid) you can see him still spinning the wheels up.. what a mongoloid. Lucky no one died (they didnt did they?)
