|SCORE Baja 1000 BLOG: Jalopnik "Spectator most reckless fan ever seen"|
Do you know Jalopnik? No? Ok. There are also people who like Rallyraid, but don´t know marathonrally.com. This is like "I´m riding horses but I´ve never seen a horse".
Jalopnik, or better [ JALOPNIK.COM ], is one of the most favourite bloggers in the cars-scene since many years. If you are really interested in cars, you must know Jalopnik. The Blog is following the internatinal super-cars scene - but sometimes we have a "cross-over". Like in this week.
We all like rallyraid. We all like desert-races. But we all know: Spectators could be a honour (and good for money) - or a nightmare. Especially the "Dakar Rally" has their own experience with spectators. They spent millions for security, police, telling the people "what to do when Dakar is coming in your village".
But especially in Africa in every year we heard about the "deadly accidents" with spectators. And the "casual" press liked this stories - to make our sport made...like "Haha, Dakar is killing people again!" We don´t like that. But nobody wrote about the cheating spectators - it´s only about the bad sport. Jalopnik has different eyes.
Actually the most interesting cars-blog world-wide published a video, which is incredible. Jalopnik is not discussing about our sport. They are discussing about the spectators, which are not following the rules. And we mean: "The" Rules.
"Baja spectators are known for setting up booby traps through the course, and they're known for getting closer to the racing vehicles than any person should get" the bloggers wrote. And someting more. And they found a video-link. A video, which is incredible, only some seconds long, bad quality. And they wrote about it. They are fans like we. So, get your own imagination.
