    This is a thread that I hate posting in, but here is a Cobra related accident which happened yesterday in SA. Seems the occupants were lucky, this time...

    Be safe out there!

    I hate to see posts on this thread. These cars really will bite you.

    I also hate to see posts on this thread but it serves a purpose to remind us that these cars can be very dangerous, especially if you are not familiar with them and how they drive and handle.

    Not a nice way to start a weekend...

    This happened yesterday morning. As I understand it, the CCSA was attending a charity event and on route to the meeting point, this member hit some diesel which was spilled on the road and lost control of his car. The car sustained extensive damage, but fortunately both the driver and his passenger are OK.

    Be careful out there...

    Cars are nothing but pieces of metal and plastic and can be repaired or replaced. People cannot.

    Glad to hear that the people above Gian were not injured.

    That was a hard crash. And you just never know what may be on a road. As Silver said, I am happy that the driver and passenger are ok and the car can be replaced or repaired.

    This was a tight line through the "S" bend.
