    Any details? It seems like an odd race. A small loop with two cars. Was the Roadster catching up (thereby frustrating the Ferrari driver who came in too hot?)

    Nothing like this format come to mind here in the US,

    From the title I thought that a Roadster and a Ferrari crashed into one another. :eek:

    That was an interesting "race". My guess is that they start at opposite sides of the loop and the winner is whomever catches the other.

    Also, it's cool to see how fast the Roadster accelerates when it hits the straight. That feeling is something I'll probably never forget.

    no it's NOT the Tesla (that crashed)...

    Did you notice how the lady in the foreground laughs and smiles at the sight of the Ferrari crashing?

    I guess that's why they use bales of hay but I'm surprised the Ferrari only sustained a damaged bumper.

    Did he find that needle? Perhaps the one he was trying to thread?

    ferrari crash

    Ferrari crash was at Grampian Transport Museum in Alford Aberdeenshire Scotland where i am one of the regular volunteers
    The Tesla /Ferrari were in a pursuit race on our small track
    first time we had seen the Tesla in action on the track
    you can check out museum details at gtm
    unusually for Scotland and the sun came out :)
    We had over 4,000 at the event ...and when you consider the population of the village itself isnt much over 3000 that aint bad for us........glad you enjoyed the clip
    cheers

    Thanks Crawford,

    For those of us in other countries, can you tell us more about the type of race? More specifics on the mechanics of the competition? Do the two cars start staggered or lined up at the same time? How many laps are run and how do you "win"? Are there penalties and prizes or simply bragging rights?
