Really cool Jim. Imagine actually being in the seat of one of these. Probably make me sick. Kind of reminded me of my morning drives to work before I retired. lol

Hi Klaus, I’m wondering if all the cars have that real time map of the track so they can see the turns coming.
I would think most of the pro drivers have that memorized.

Hi Pete. Great fun ‘eh, mate!! While I was going through the videos, there are a several where some of the guys have been killed – mainly from chute problems and wind. That bird suit is becoming more popular. We go to a place called Skydive Arizona where they are jumping all day long- people from all over the world come there. This year we saw a few with the bird suits.
It has to be a great rush to be able to fly around the mountains like that. Oh to be young again!!

cheers, Jim
