8 yr old girl dies drag-racing
Nov 12th, 2017 at 5:39pm
 
Well another Redneck act of stupidity has resulted in an 8 year old girl dying in a Drag-Racing event.

People would sell out anything, even their children - to make $$$ on entertainment value.  Roll Eyes

Oh, and just on the news.
Father leaves gun on table forgetfully and infant kid shoots other infant sibling dead, in USA (of course).

Very sad.

Dragsters and 8 year olds don't mix.

I would have thought they would have the safety capsule that F1 cars have.

Go-Karts would have been better at her age.

Poor little bugger   Cry

A couple of points, though.

cods: it's not just Perth.

"She had just turned eight on Thursday, the minimum age to be allowed to race under Australian National Drag Racing Association rules."


And, how many little girls have died as a result of pony/horse accidents?

Anyway, it's a tragic story - I hate hearing about kids being killed.

The poor little kid -
she was just trying to have some fun.

Those cars only have tiny engines - how the hell did she die?

210CC purple dragster.
Under ANDRA rules, racers aged between eight and 10 must not exceed 96km/h, but it is understood the top speeds of vehicles driven by beginners are much lower.

Concrete barrier (which is cheap).

They need to install wire rope barriers.

But how could she steer into it?

Maybe there was a fault in the car?

Not the point.

If they had wire-rope barriers, she'd still be alive.

She died because the complex wanted to save money.

Sad.

I can assure you that the safety regulations set down by ANDRA
are very strict.

Concrete barriers are not safe.

Wire-rope barriers save lives.

This poor child died because of cost-cutting.

Concrete barriers aren't illegal - they're just the cheaper option.

Most of the concrete barriers on Perth's freeways have been replaced with wire-rope barrier, because the government knows it saves lives.
