Bahria drag racing accident leaves three dead

In Bahria, Pakistan the fastest Toyota Supra wrecked on December 5, 2010 at over 160 km/h leaving three dead and two severely injured. The cause of the accident is unknown, but from watching the footage it appears that it could have been driver error. The following clip provided by YouTube user ObaidWaheed gives us the upfront and personal tour of this accident as it took place and the horrific aftermath left behind. Similar to the Mazda RX-7 which was wrecked at the Hamara Karachi race, Pakistan is obviously lacking in proper racing safety methods which nearly always end up in disaster.

Why did this happen? As you can see, the track was improperly built and lacked the proper safety barriers. Beyond safety barriers, the audience was allowed to stand too close to the track due to a lack of security personnel. The way that this track was setup, it was only a matter of time before something terrible happened and lives were lost. Why is it that in order to learn anything, or for rules to be changed, people must die first? A little precautionary safety would have gone a long way, and probably saved the lives of those slain by the neglectful practices found at this race track.

Just goes to show you, keep it on the track doesn't always work. The racing world sends it's condolences to those who lost their life in the Bahria, Pakistan Supra drag racing accident.

  1. This is not the driver's mistake these cars can slide due to lack of traction. You can't blame to the driver because this was the organizer's mistake they should make the safety barriers to prevent these type of accidents.
