Some amazing footage, and I'm sure the gentleman in the blue Beetle would have preferred a seat belt
It's a guess, but are skinny tires the result of many of those crashes? Those cars seem to lose much of their grip. The VW Beetles must have taken forever to get up to speed for those flips.

Skinny tyres do not cause cars to flip. Coming over a crest and trying to turn in with poor weight balance and driving skill is a bigger cause. Relatively primitive rear suspension designs (swing axle) is not helping some drivers either.

anyone got the larger segment of this??
All the Top Gear stuff is usually up on youtube before the BBC cracks down on it. I even saw the episode from yesterday on the BBC this morning! Which to me is lunacy, as I would watch Top Gear on TV if they played the new episodes here, which they don't. The TV stations should embrace the internet and put up the shit as well to become more popular and use ads for profit. Morons. Poke around for new Top Gear episodes then look at that user's collections as they are usualy regular posters of material.

You just have to see this to believe it...

Hot Hatch track day (racing?) at Knockhill (right click, save target as)

You have to download the player but it's worth it:

It is NOT "racing" despite what they might want to brag.
It's "hot hatch" and is now full of guys who think everyone else is a wanker on track and that they themselves do everything right. ( the video proves the truth and error of that )
The vid is just BS and I've often had conversation with guys like that and suggest they take up racing seriously if they think they are THAT good.
99% of them get lapped in controlled racing with just a few laps

Sadly the "hot hatch" events at tracks are now avoided by fast and expensive cars and good drivers out to exercise the limits safely. Would YOU want to share a track with the "gimps" ?

They're good for a laugh, but so is watching car chases on TV !!!

I'm amazed by the way they crash into each other with wreckless abandon. I guess they don't care about their cars but they should care about the safety of the drivers and the passengers; at those speeds and such a difficult track it would be easy for someone to get hurt (just T bone a spinning car and voilá). I reckon track days would have multicar accidents now and again, but the video shows BTCC levels.

Don't forget a high center of gravity.

It's amazing how so many drivers went full throttle.

Even in the Gran Turismo 4 version, I went full throttle until I figured out to use the brake at the corner.

yeah well you're seeing the worst of the idiots with that vid
Not all trackdays are like that.
However it's the main reason I recommend locals to go to CLUB organised trackdays and not the hot-hatch chav days.
Notice how there are cones to channel them at corners ? That's an attempt to stop the idiotic dive for the inside that works for them on Gran Turismo "Real" days don't do that allowing you to explore the lines better.

and some of the cars are not road legal !!! MOT failures so worth very little.
Most tracks are now responding by requiring to see an MOT for a car entry -- whcih are dead easy to forge

x2, the porsche track day was very neatly organised and not a chance of a collision all day...
that said, the sprint days are nowhere near as bad as that video and anyone can go to those at the sprints sometimes people go off the track, but never hit each other in al the times i've spectated them...
