Well that was short lived.

If only they remembered about each other driving on opposite sites of the road. :D

Maybe they should switch vehicles?

It wouldn't make a difference since they still wouldn't be able to see each others hand signals :P

Suddenly I see why this kind of racing isn't really big. If you don't have really experienced or seasoned drivers with this form of racing you run the risk of massive accidents. Although for those who just want to see cars wreck, that might be a dream come true :D

Which leads me to something I've always pondered: If a sizable percentage of racing fans (at least, here in the US especially when it comes to NASCAR) just want to see cars wreck, why aren't demolition derbies the most popular sporting activity in the country? Seems to me like there'd be huge demand for them everywhere.

Could be because demo-derby cars don't exactly set the world on fire speedwise while cars racing at speedways and circuit tracks will often crash at high speeds and far more spectacularly than any car at a demo derby could. Those people probably don't want to just see cars crashing, they want to see them catch fire, get airborne, go flipping end over end, tear up multiple cars, have parts and pieces flying everywhere, etc.

I used to be a "wreck fan" (my terminology for that sort of racing fan, I've seen others use it too) but I kind of grew out the older I got. Wrecks are a part of racing and always will be as long as humans are behind the wheel but they're not THE reason to watch racing. I feel like a lot of people who are just fans of the crashes often either forget or don't care that there are human beings in the cars and that they could actually be hurt or worse in an accident. It annoys me when someone cites a reason a race was boring or sucked as "there were barely any accidents".

This reminds me of how in that stock car racing episode of Malcolm In The Middle, Malcolm and his brothers are asking why they aren't seeing flaming wrecks, while their dad is like "No, racing is about strategy. The wrecks are just... Kind of a bonus".XD

If I was in that race, I would've caused that crash! Plus I still need my drivers license XD

In the words of Tony Stark, "not a great plan."

Ah yes, The different drivers seat sides.

VERY different driving styles.
Not used to each other.
Plus the crossed driers seats.
And I bet Sasha left NO time for learning/rehearsing hand signals.
That crash was inevitable.
Maybe a nice rally would have been a better choice for their first race together?

Bit late now in think XD

How did they end up with cars with opposite-side drivers'seats in the same region to begin with?

If you remember the rallycross story in which they first met, the twins use a bright orange Ford Escort Mexico imported from the UK, which means it has right hand drive. This is the same car...

Okay, so previous strips have implied that it was Sasha who got a hold of the cars and lashed them together...

So you'd think she'd have noticed the discrepancy earlier? :P

She's not one to plan ahead too carefully.

I bet after that crash Reg was on the receiving end of multiple displays of a specific hand gesture for causing that.
