Yikes!

Nice car, nice driving... well, talented driving, but extreemely stupid.

I'll admit that I've driven like that before. Back in high school I did a lot of stupid things that should have gotten me killed. Try driving like that after an eight ball... that will get the heart pumping. lol

Agreed - seems pretty skilled at finding the holes. Also agreed: stuuuupid.

If a driver kills himself being an fool behind the wheel, I chalk it up to Darwinism and carry on.

But when things do go wrong, it's the other people he takes out (inside his car, other cars or pedestrians) that are the issue.

Stupid. What if someone makes an unexpected lane change.

My dad has driven even worse than that when he had the Audi TT. It was amazingly stable at 140, I must admit.

I dunno about that. BMW is really safe when it comes to safety.

Dude, safety doesn't mean a thing at 100+ MPH. You might as well be driving my n600 at those speeds.

Yup. Anyone seen the famous Audi crash?

The only thing I don't understand about that video is how he managed to organize all those cars to be parked on the interstate, at the same time.

Looking again at the video, I don't think what he did was THAT risky. It shows how derated the speeds on interstates can be. If you notice, he didn't ever go fast enough where he couldn't slow down given the amount of free space in front of him. The only luck he was relying on was that someone wouldn't suddenly swerve into his lane, which on most interestates is a reasonable assumption.
