A Fiery Crash at SPEEDVEGAS in Las Vegas, Nevada February 12, 2017
Yesterday, an instructor and student were killed in a fiery Lamborghini race track crash at SPEEDVEGAS in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Participants must wear helmets as they drive around 1 1/2 mile racetrack. The track boasts sweeping and banked turns and a straightaway.”
An opportunity for amateurs to experience the rush of speed. Some of us have driven a fast paced car for the rush, the feeling, with your favorite music playing in the background. I must admit that I have driven my car above and beyond the speed limit. Some people are attracted to great dangerous feats, other men and women might think twice about and pass. With great risk comes danger and the ultimate risk is paying with your precious life.
There have been countless car accidents throughout the United States and the one that made it to national and world news was the car accident that involved movie star Paul Walker who died on November 30, 2013 starring in all “The Fast and The Furious” movies. A very sobering fact for many who enjoy the rush of speed always take the risk.
In this kind of collision involving extremely high speed, no helmet was going to prevent a terrible tragedy where a car made of the lightest fiberglass material slams into a wall of concrete.
Here are more of the details of this terrible tragedy.
“SpeedVegas CEO and co-founder Aaron Fessler confirmed the deaths and said in a statement that the racetrack was cooperating with authorities.”
“We are devastated by this tragic event and extend our heartfelt sympathy to the families and to our SpeedVegas team members who have lost a beloved colleague,” Fessler said.
“SpeedVegas offers participants to drive its dream cars on its own Las Vegas track. Participants can drive a Ferrari, three types of Lamborghinis, a Mercedes and more.”
“A client at a track-day experience in Las Vegas apparently lost control and crashed a Lamborghini into a wall on Sunday, killing himself and the driving instructor in the passenger’s seat, the Las Vegas Sun reports.”
“The crash happened at SpeedVegas, a “supercar experience” center that allows customers—even those without racing experience— to pay to drive exotic sports cars on the “longest and fastest racetrack in Las Vegas.”
“The news site says the man behind the wheel, who was in his mid-30s, spun the white Lamborghini off the track and into a concrete barrier lined with tires, after which the car burst into flames:”
Stay safe and follow the speed limit because no risk is worth your life and your loved ones suffering the tragedy of losing you.
