Figure 8 racing is scary as hell. It would have been easier if the figure of eight didn't actually intersect.
But, unfortunately for the drivers, the track does come back and cross itself and the view from the drivers seat of this deadly game of cat and mouse can get people a bit queasy.
And when crazy Americans add demolition derby rules and make it a race between school buses it can really get scary as this old clip demonstrates.
DriveSpark wonders what those nutjob Americans will come up with next, all in the name of entertainment.
