    I think its time people had to do a harder more intensive test to drive such powerful cars at such a young age ! He is one lucky lad looking at those pictures ...

    nothing new here tho.
    i remember back in the 90's a series called 999 with reconstructions of emergencies....
    an old volvo estate (think it was) that crashed into the end of some long pole type barriers with concreate posts. the pole had gone thru the front missed the engine and thru the rest of the car including the drivers stomach but missing vital organs somehow. fire fighters had to cut thru the pole with a hacksaw behind and infront of him and took him to hospital still with the pole in him!
