The black one was "launched" over a wall at the JC. The hear the story was awful in itself.

The red one, IIRC, was T3.

What do you mean by JC?

T3 inside or outside wall? Broadside hit is weird, particularly for a Boxster.

Don't recall the details...Pete K discussed it and showed the photo. But, IIRC, it was a warmup lap in red or black. Guy was doing the " NASCAR weave" to warm tires...so not exactly a typical accident.

That pic was from 6/04, I thought that was at SP, but I can't remember that long ago. A guy and his wife were sharing the car.

A good picture for this would be jazzbass crashing the scooter. Maybe a video. That was awesome. Scooter sits with a dead rear tire. Did its time well. Do any of you guys want it for a pit scooter?
