Part of the problem is the design of those concrete blocks. OK so the driver had a brake fade read brain fade and went in hard but those blocks are a real problem.

There are plenty of them on our freeways. Have a look at them next time they are wide at the base have a lip about 250 mm that angles, up then they taper to the top.

When a car hits them at an angle it is a perfect launching ramp for any car.

Looking at it really well it can be seen that the panels are all linked together and the car knocks over about 60mtrs of the concrete blocks.

Ford Perana crash on Targa West
This is a south african developed and built car. Essentially a Ford Capri with a 302 v8 shoe horned into the front. This crash is the second Perana crash at the same spot. The other car is the first perana but upside down!!!

I'd put that down to broken contact between navigator and driver, and driver relying too heavily on his navigator. Nice one Tommo - since when were you a Porsche buff huh?
