Street luge racers wreck at highway speeds. During a two-man race heat between Darius Escandar and Bob Swartz, defecation met oscillation. Swartz caught minor air at 70+ mph after drafting Escandar into a 70mph+ chicane. Upon losing control, he flies into the guardrail going 75 to 0mph in a few feet. In an effort to dodge Bob’s presumed location, Darius pulls hard right off his racing line to avoid where luge pilots ricochet in an effort to save Swartz from a deadly luge impact. With zero visibility through the debris and unable to brake while steering, he came out on the other side traveling toward the natural embankment at nearly top speed. Both riders survived with minimal injury despite the severity of the crash.
After buying our turkey, it needed cooking! The best source of flames and heat I know has to be the Aventador LP760 from Oakley Design, fitted with a full titanium exhaust system and ready to spit fire!
I gave them a call, and headed on round to see their new car; wrapped in black chrome, and refitted with a full orange alcantara interior, not mentioning the 60hp power increase and carbon additions including rear spoiler.
It goes without saying that some good heat and flames meant for a cooked turkey, and ready for lunch!
