BTG will be in a transition period for the next couple of months. During this time I will be refreshing and updating the best static content and porting it over to the new system. This older version of the site will remain online for an extended period, but you will only find the newest stories and information on the new site.

Why did the 8-car pile up happen?


 Just watch these videos and judge for yourself:

Watch this one from 4m50s...

And the next one too...

 What these show is a clear lack of understanding by the guardrail workers on the speeds involved, or how a car works. By placing the warnings in these positions they are asking cars to both turn and brake from over 120mph over a crest down to just 30mph. No wonder they crashed.

Why no safety marshalls accompanying the repair crew? Why no flag marshalls? When TF was only 500 people, I understand that flag marshalls cost too much. But when 1000s of cars trying to drive, flag marshalls will save lives.

Unfortunately for TF fans, I suspect the answer might be a speed limit rather than a safety worker...

Just in case you thought this was an isolated incident of poorly placed roadworks signs with no warnings:

Do you enjoy BTG?  

BTG is NOT a massive operation; it's just me, my camera and my computer. And a lot of help from my friends and family. Thanks!
