Default Man runs on to F1 track dressed as a Matador.

http://www.break.com/index/crazy-man...-f1-track.html

Break is providing much entertainment today. Dude is dressed like a Matador and trying to get hit by F1 cars. They're going at least 140 wizzing by him.

I remember a few years ago I was driving on a fairly busy road. It was very dark, that road has no lights on it. It was very heavy traffic. I was first at the red light on the very right lane. Anyways, as I'm driving, about 100 feet in front of me I see a chubby black girl walking towards us on the side of the road. I pulled to the left as far as I could, and this girl dove in front of my car! F*ck that, I'm not going to be part of a suicide attempt. I slammed my brakes on and switched to the next left lane as fast as I could. I look in my rearview mirror and she tries to dive in front of the next car.

No idea what happened, me and my ex watched the news that night to see if she was succesful. Guess not. Failed suicide attempt failed.

His name is Cornelius Horan and he's an Irish priest.

Read up about what he did during the Athen's Olympic marathon. Most people believe he screwed a guy out of a gold medal.

Oh, so this is the 2003 Grand Prix. A little old, Break?

I was thinking about the Tom Pryce accident when I saw the video and coincidentally, his Wiki article mentions it. He could've killed himself and other drivers. What an ass.

I thought it was funny how they just dragged him, he looked like he was dead.

Cause if you hit him at 160 mph he'd be in pieces

The Tom Pryce accident is just crazy. The body of the marshal just kind of rips apart as the car hits him and the other marshal and the other drive just kind of look on and think nothing of it, as if bodies getting ripped apart by F1 cars in the middle of a race is the norm.

Yep I was at the race in 03! I wasn't sat in that area, but they showed it on the jumbotron, and everyone was just like .

Long time ago now though.

There was another incident in Germany at the 2000 grand prix in Hockenheim where an ex disgruntled Mercedes employee who crossed the track and started walking down the side of it, and they had to send out the safety car which changed the whole complexion of the race. Ironically, the McLaren car driven by David Coulthard, which used Mercedes engines had his race ruined due to the safety car coming out.
