Hadnt heard about that. Not good news at all. Hope its shown how safe the structure is, and kept the occupants safe though

I heard about this via my Dealer RRG in Macc

Apparently they had a delivery today and the transporter driver said that he'd been overtaken by a Red 86 on the M60 doing about 120mph. Apparently it had flipped and slid on its roof for about 200 yards.

Apparently young Asian guy driving it walked away unhurt

120mph? Bollocks.As with all these things, I'm pretty sure wildlyexaggerated.
At 120 mph a car on it's wheels braking hard would take most of that distance.

It cirtainly wouldnt be doing 120MPH when it landed on its roof.... 200yards is about 180metres which as Lordgrover says is the freaking stoppnig distance that those speeds!!......that is unless it hit a rather large tree
