I don’t know how I missed this one when it was posted back in November, but this is one of the craziest motorsport crashes I have ever seen, and it involves a rather unlikely subject.
Around my area, the only people who drive Honda‘s Insight hybrid are nuclear plant employees who are still hanging on to their super high mileage, first generation hybrids. The machine you are about to see is not like those cars. The HASport Hondata Insight is a full on land speed record car, capable of speeds in the range of 200 miles per hour!
Brian Gillespie was running at El Mirage in November 2013, when things went horribly wrong somewhere between 180-190 MPH. The resulting crash is incredibly violent. It was a testament to the safety equipment built into the car that Gillespie suffered only minor injuries.
Think you want to drive at 200 MPH? You might think otherwise after watching this.
