    About 20 cars driving at 140 to 150 km/h(less than 100 miles/h) crashed in Shimonoseki City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan today.
    The road was slippery after rain. Eight of them are said Ferrari from Tokyo.
    Drivers were slightly injured. No one was killed.

    Thanks for posting that, Shinpachi. I would imagine there is more to that story than just the rain; I bet they were driving in close formation for so many of them to have been wiped out like that.

    Dang....even at speeds of "less than 100mph", those drivers are dang lucky to have walked/limped/crawled away from a pileup like that. Typically at those speeds, there's not much left for the police to identify.

    Yup, all that HP, nice wide racing tires, and rear wheel drive plus rain, can we say hydroplaning. That's why the Sky is stored until summer
