True, but it was the Vette that instigated the whole affair and the same argument applies.
"The guy let his friend drive the 4th run. The friend was driving a nice mid 90's Vette and was one of the fastest cars in the run group. So as he came through the finish cones, he went to grab the brakes but got the clutch instead and this is the aftermath...."
In our events, novices (the site lists the driver as a "friend", but is not clear if the driver was a registered participant) are not permitted to drive other people's cars in fun runs. This example is a big reason why. Under no circumstances is someone who is not registered for an event permitted to drive, even in fun runs.
