Can't go to the brick anymore

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
My dad said I can't go to the Brick anymore because most people who go there go crazy with their trucks/cars and endanger others by their reckless driving and he does not want me to get hurt or anything, this may sound a bit "babying" but I somewhat agree with him...I brought up the fact about safety and that we lack it but it seems that only a few people nothing will make my dad change his mind.

A parents first priority is the safety of ther children, no matter how old you are. Your father is a good dad looking out for his son, I would do the same for my boys if I thought they were in any kind of danger. Respect his wishes.

Oh wow thats unfortunate but saftey i guess has to be beefed up @ the brick somehow. Even though i haven't been there before, maybe create some type of barier?

I kind of agree.. As it was only my second time out.. I saw lots of people driving full boar at themselves.. or the crowd.. and not breaking untill the last minute.. I even saw one guy drive his TC into himself.. and hurt his hand..

It does seem to make sence.. maybe only allow full speed runs up and down the parking lot instead of back at the crowd.. a barrier will be too "large" unless we make evryone park in the parking lot behind.. and have to sit on the grass... I dono.. Viper should take that seriously I think..

anyone know the death toll last year or the year b4 that ? or even the injury tally for the last 10 years with this group ? the worst thing i could see hapening is a brused ankle at the extreem most . i think the only 1 in any real danger is the little guy thats always running around cause most ppl rnt always keeping a eye on him but his dad keep[s a pretty good handle on him . maybe theres other reasons for ur dad to not want u there .

Just my 2 cents...

Safety is everyones first priority, from the little guy that kevin talks about to the most wisest and experienced driver. This sport dangerous and potentially fatal, and should be treated will the upmost respect. This issue should be addressed by the organizers of the basher groups to ensure we all can enjoy these venues for years to come.

Furthermore, I would be in favour of a small safety course requirement (15 minutes) for the participants of larger bashing groups (Barrie Bashers / Hobby Home Bashers), to ensure that rules and disipline are enforced to protect the organizers of the group and individuals participating in the group.

Just wait till someone from the brick checks it out.
If they knew they would shut you down so fast it would make your head spin.

All they would see is someone sueing them for an injury on their property.

dude a monster truck WILL BREAK YOUR LEG if it hit you going full tilt... if it hit your car it would put a nice dent or scrach on it... it was before your time but once a 1/5 scale lost radio control heading for the crowd and lucky it missed everyone and hit a car... it actually jacked the car up... can you imagine what would have happed if that was a person... i think its only a matter of time before all these close calls get a little too close...

its a pretty simple solution... just don't run your car full speed towards the crowd...

I couple of months ago at a big nitro boat race a 50 inch gas hydro went haywire, jumped onto shore at full speed and broke a man's both legs. He is better right now but he was suffering a lot
