This spectator didn't have very good luck either

The guy in the corvette got a little too confident going into this turn and hit the gas a bit hard.

Safety first, spectator, course worker, or driver. These things shouldn't be happenning.

The first video looks like it could have been more than just driver error, but that group shouldn't have been allowed to park that close to the track while they were obsersving. Good thing no one was hurt. Well, except for the EVO, G35, and the NSX.

The second video shouldn't have happenned either. That's just too agressive on such a small course. One of the reasons I won't autocross my vette anywhere but Milton Frank. And I won't push it unless I'm comfortable that I can't hit anything (or anyone) even if things do get out of hand. Motorsports are dangerous--and these are reminders of that.

Yes Mother..... They offer parade laps at lunch if you want to cruise.

Crap happens. I agree I wouldn't want spectators there, but that is the inside of the turn, and I wouldn't hesitate to be there as a corner worker. Poor driving and freak circumstance caused that.

It was at the inside of a corner, but it was also in the path of a potential runaway exit from the previous corner. I usually use "behind a wall" as a good rule as to where to be, lol.
