RX-7 crashes at 215mph

All I can say is...WOW. This is more commonly seen with those hydroplaning boat races.

lol 7 tier wings. His nose just gradualy started to lift. You think once you started to feel you steering go, you'd back off a little, just a little.

I love how the chute comes out at the end pretty much.

yeah! If he had a 7-tier wing like in "Cars", then he wouldn't have taken off like a plane. It's pretty sick to see a car come off the ground. Really insights you to the possibilities of flying cars...

That's Jim Merender at Bonneville, in 1992. Always amazed to see that.
