Have you seen the damage hitting a hay bale can do? Better to have a big run off area ... even if part of it is vertical. :eek:

Nope, but I would have thought if he hit a hay bale there it would have knocked him back onto the track instead of down a ravine. Anyway, they work for Goodwood...

Hitting hay bales is like hitting a very solid wall, ask the Appolo Gumpert or the AMG Merc drivers at this years Goodwood!

In this situation though, I can't help feeling they'd have helped, as mentioned above, they'd have kept him on the track, and given the angle he'd have only given them a glancing blow.

There is something in that. Mind you, the right kind of armco would do an even better job. But then, it's a bit like the argument in rallying. If hill climbing wasn't quite as dangerous and didn't involve the potential for disappearing down huge scary drops, it wouldn't as much fun... or something. Don't underestimate how big a factor the danger is in the adrenaline rush.
