Begs the question, why are people dying in modern cars??? Why can't they make them 1/3 as safe?

Do you enjoy having more than one seat and paying less than a hundred thousand dollars for a car?

Because people don't want to have to get in/out through the drivers window?

Most of the safety equpiment is not street legal.

* They have a 5-point seatbelt system. Co$tly.
* They have an oversized roll cage. Notice the driver's compartment is always perfectly intact.
* Bucket seats have head restraints encompassing the driver's head. Can't see to the side, or behind you.
* Haas Device tethers your head to the seat, so you're stuck looking dead straight.

The end result is you're secured better than anything you ship UPS. As for knowing what's going on beside or behind you, there's spotters along the track (atop bleachers) telling the drivers everything around them. Bigger tracks means multiple spotters.
