look like a fun event to watch.

but gheeesh, is that not some unsafe spectaing
area! that area should be roped off!

don't get me wrong, i love free roaming for spectators.
but if that is a designated area, i think they need
to rethink that!

Ummm that is _THE_ designated area for spectators...several thousand people..concesion stands..helicopter rides that who shebang...

It's not overly obvious in the video but there is a significant ditch before the BIG bank which the spectators are standing on..their feet are about 5' above the roof of the cars.

Trust me its a good spot and safe too..

>No Helicopter this year :(

Rain, low ceiling and temperature too close to freezing. Icing conditions and therefore they could not fly.

That spot is very safe, with a significant ditch, also we take the tape further up the hill in the runoff zone. Like tirc said, most people are standing well above the cars, except those that like to eat gravel. The area that the cars are coming from, in the video, slows them significantly as they have to make a 90 right on to a one lane bridge and then a 90 left up a steep hill.
