A Red Bull stunt car takes a few hazardous laps around Ratchadamnoen street at over 100mph.
Formula One (F1) was in town last weekend and with it, the bar was lowered in how dangerously an event can be managed. The stunt cars were the teaser act before the actual F1 race car (driven by Mark Webber) made its appearance. As they whipped around doing donuts and drifting around corners at 100mph, I couldn't help but cringe at how close they were coming to spectators lining the sidewalk. Luckily no one was injured and F1-crazy Bangkokians seemed to fully enjoy the spectacle, despite closing down one of the major arteries of the city during mid-day traffic to host this event.

No, it's not a remote controlled vehicle. In Thailand, the steering wheel is on the right side of the vehicle, much like in jolly old England. And like English traffic, Thais drive on the
wrong left side of the street unlike in the US where we drive on the correct right side of the road.
Stay tuned, Mark Webber and his screaming machine, coming up tomorrow!
